Linking with our Creative Curriculum theme, this term we will be designing, creating and evaluating model Anderson Shelters. 


We will be learning how to:

DT2/1.1a    use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups

DT2/1.3c    understand how key events and individuals in design and technology have helped shape the world

DT2/1.1b    generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and computer-aided design

DT2/1.4a    apply our understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures

DT2/1.2a    select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks accurately

DT2/1.2b    select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities

DT2/1.3b    evaluate our ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work
