St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Design and Technology

Spring 1


This half term, the children are looking at a 'cooking' module.  This will be linked to their Geography topic about a contrasting city in China, Cheng Du.  The children will have the opportunity to taste and cook some chinese food.

Autumn 1
The children are learning all about 'Structures' in Design and Technology.  The children were given the challenge to build a bridge that would hold the weight of Mr. Snail.  The important part of this activity was 'team work'.  Each group were given the same resources; a large piece of paper, some dried pasta, dried spaghetti and a roll of sellotape.  By the end of the session, the carpet was a sea of pasta!  Two out of the five groups managed to create a bridge by the end of the day.
The children worked in pairs using a construction kit to build a pulley.  It was difficult but they worked really hard and had some excellent results.
