This year we will be seeing some new and up-dated projects for Design Technology. We have planned challenging units, an outline of which can be found in the curriculum map below with a sample plan, which allow the children to explore and develop skills in the key areas; Textiles, food, structures, mechanisms and control.
Children in Year 5 will be able to develop their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and maths) skills with an exciting Robotics club at The John Warner School. Look out for more on this soon.
If your child is interested in DT and STEM activities please explore the external websites below for ideas of things to do at home.
Sample DT module
2nd week STEM club- super separators
1st week STEM club- air pressure and gliders
DT 2017 to 2018
Primary Engineers Project
This year we have been working with the Primary Engineers association to develop our own subject knowledge and unique experiences for the children. We have been learning how to make a range of moving vehicles; from the simple shoe box car to wiring our own electric moving cars. During this project both staff and children have been learning a wide range of new skills and finding out how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) are linked together within a task. Below are a selection of photos from some of our sessions. Soon we will be attending a special celebration event at a top Engineering business.
