Summer Term - Topic 2

 

 

Balanced Diet

The focus for the next two weeks is Design and Technology. 

We will kick start our topic with a sugar workshop to investigate amount of sugar in drinks. Over the course of the two weeks, we will be investigating and asking questions about food and nutrients. Each child will be investigating foods to design and create a wrap. 

Objectives: 

  • 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
  • select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing]
  • select from and use a wide range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their characteristics
  • evaluate their ideas and products against design criteria
