Ashfield Primary School DT Long Term Plan
Design and Technology is taught from Early Years to Year 6 at Ashfield Primary. We teach: structures, mechanisms, food and nutrition and textile design.
March 2021: Oak Class have been exploring triangulation and using braces to make stable structures with spaghetti and plasticine.
Year 6 spent a morning building structures with newspaper. They had to think like engineers about how to make their structures tall and stable without using glue.
Year 5 - Creating and building structures and learning from our own success and failures. First attempt.
Year 5 - Creating and building structures and learning from our own success and failures. Second attempt after evaluation.
Year 4 planned, made and evaluated a pencil case.
Year 2 researched their textile product before the design work. The sea creature finger puppets were based on the story 'Tiddler' by Julia Donaldson. We asked Early Years what puppets they would like to play with and then designed a template. The joining method was running stitch.
Year 2 Food and Nutrition: Designing, Making and Evaluating a delicious dip served on a platter with vegetables.
Year 2: Using textiles to make a brooch for Mothers' Day. The children sewed on a button and joined their felt pieces by stitching them together.
