- To construct 3D nets
- Generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and computer-aided design (Extension activity)
- Select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing] accurately
- Select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic
- Apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures
Pupils needing extra support: Can create simpler structures and configurations.
Work in pairs or groups.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should create more complex and wide-ranging structures.
Should use more sophisticated configurations using a mixture of their own nets and collected objects.
