Autumn Term 

 

 

Structures

Our first topic focuses on Design and Technology. We will be investigating structures and learning how to make stronger structures before making our own chairs to help baby bear. 

We will be starting our topic with a challenge to 'Save Dave' using the supplies given. Will we keep him safe off the ground by creating a strong structure? 

 

We will be covering the following objectives:

  • Design purposeful, functional, appealing products for themselves and other users
    based on design criteria
  • Select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks 
  • Build structures, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable 

We will be reading Oliver Jeffers' book 'What we'll build' as part of our topic. 

In English, we are reading 'The King who banned the dark' and we will be writing letters and our own stories based on the book.
