Below is the Long Term Plan for Design and Technology. We are currently working on Cycle B (2023-2024)
In Class 2 the children are exploring 'sandwiches', the different ingredients, how they are made and most importantly how they are healthy. The children explored the different types of bread you could make sandwiches out of and decided to evaluate them using exciting adjectives.
In KS2 children should...
'Select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing].' -National Curriculum 2013
In KS1 children should...
'Design purposeful, functional, appealing products for themselves and other users based on design criteria.' - National Curriculum 2013
This half-term Class One have really enjoyed creating, designing and evaluating picture frames.
Firstly they enjoyed researching the purpose of picture frames. Then they demonstrated their making skills by measuring, cutting and joining pieces of wood. Finally the children decorated their frames using velvet and lots of sequins!
