Before the lesson
- To follow my design brief to make my pop up book
Pupils should be taught to:
- Generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and computer-aided design
- 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 qualities
- Investigate and analyse a range of existing products
- Evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work
- Apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures
Understand and use mechanical systems in their products [for example, gears, pulleys, cams, levers and linkages]
Pupils needing extra support: You can give them the Activity: Jack and Jill book A stencil you use to help you draw the same shape more easily on to different materials…. and/or the Activity: Jack and Jill moving and pop-up parts that have been used as demonstration pieces in each of the teacher videos accompanying this topic. Could create their structures and mechanisms based on the Activity: Jack and Jill book template and the Activity: Jack and Jill moving and pop-up parts that accompany the lesson.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should work independently and be encouraged to make use of more complex mechanisms/sophisticated structures.
