Before the lesson
To create a range of different shaped frame structures
- Use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose aimed at particular individuals or groups.
- Generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes and CAD
- Select from and use a wider range of materials, components and construction materials according to their functional properties and aesthetics
- Investigate and analyse a range of existing products
- Year 3 – Draw 2D shapes and make 3D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3D shapes in different orientations and describe them
- Year 4 – Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes
Pupils needing extra support: Could produce simple, smaller structures and may need to rely more heavily on images for ideas.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should explore larger, more complex structures (eg: with overhangs) and should experiment with different ideas.
