Design Technology


In DT we have been inspired by our Topic lessons to design our own robots. We made 2 plans/drawings of what our robots would look like and what materials we would use and then today we made the 3D versions. We had great fun constructing our robots and we now know some new techniques for joining materials. 

Split pin Robots

From our Science lessons, we now know the names of the different parts of the human body and how many of each body part we have.  We used this knowledge to compare and contrast humans and robots and created these split pin robots in DT to help us compare.  We needed resilience when cutting and using split pins as these were very tricky indeed.

Fire Engines

In our topic Fire Fire! we have gained lots of knowledge about The Great Fire of London. We have also compared fire fighters jobs from the past to now. After we visited Wesham Fire Station and learnt all about the equipment inside a fire engine, we were inspired to created our own fire engines. We focused on the chassis having axles and wheels, as well as some of the other equipment needed on a fire engine such as the ladders and hose. We are going to evaluate our work on what we thought went well and what we could improve next time. 

Our Pigs

As part of our topic 'Animals Around the World' we have been interested in learning about different pigs. In DT we have planned to make a pig face and then used salt dough to create this design. After the pig had dried, we painted it to look like our plan. We then evaluated our work thinking about the good parts and the parts that we could improve next time.
