Design & Technology

Autumn Term


This term, we will design, make and evaluate pulleys and gears. The children will be taught the difference between 'structure' and 'function' when thinking of a design; they will then explore if their design is fit for purpose when they make it. Lastly, they will be able to evaluate their design and make changes accordingly. This unit is strongly linked to our unit of work in science 'forces'.
