- To investigate different money containers.
- To know that products are used for different purposes and for different users.
- To design and model a suitable money container using different fabrics.
- To know of and be able to use back stitches and running stitches.
- To make the money container that has been designed
- Attach pieces together by sewing components.
- To evaluate the money containers that have been made.
- To investigate, analyse and evaluate books and other products that use a range of lever and linkage mechanisms.
- To know where levers and linkages are used in commercial products or industry.
- Begin to develop an understanding that mechanical systems such as levers and linkages or pneumatic systems can create movement.
- Understand and use lever and linkages, and fixed and loose pivots.
- Develop a design brief within a context that is meaningful and authentic.
- Design a mechanism using annotated sketches and a prototype to model and communicate ideas.
- Using appropriate tools and skills, make their designed product.
- Evaluate how well does your structure work?
- How did you make the structure strong and durable? How does your product protect and contain? How does the product look? Is it appealing for the user?
- Discuss and investigate a range of battery-powered products including nightlights.
- Look at the design, function and purpose.
- Investigate examples of switches, including those which are commercially available, which work in different ways e.g. push-to-make, push-to-break, toggle switch. Let the children use them in simple circuits e.g. How might different types of switches be useful in different types of products?
- Design a nightlight using a switch through generating a range of ideas that has an agreed design criterion including safety features.
- Using annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, as appropriate, to develop, model and communicate ideas.
- Consider the main stages in making the design.
- Using a range of recyclable materials, make their product for the intended user.
- Evaluate how well does the nightlight work.
- Will the night light meet the needs of the user and achieve its purpose?
