- To design a moving story book
Pupils should be taught to:
- Design purposeful, functional appealing products for themselves and other users based on design criteria
- Generate, develop, model, and communicate their ideas through talking, drawing, templates, mock-ups and, where appropriate, information and communication technology
Pupils needing extra support: Could work together as a group with the teacher/TA to make a shared moving picture. Refer to the Activity: To make, draw or write plans for something. A stencil you use to help you draw the same shape more easily on to different materials…., and provide the pupils with fewer blocks (story, background, moving part and The parts of an object that move together as part of a machine….) to complete on the task giving them greater focus on one or two aspects. If the pupils need further visual support designing their moving storybook, show them the Pupil Video: Construction from Lesson 3 (see ‘Design & Technology, Mechanisms: Making a moving storybook, Lesson 3: Construction’).
Pupils working at greater depth: Should think about including more than one type of movement on each page – for instance, they might have Humpty and a bird moving on page one.
