Design Technology

Electrical systems - Simple circuits and switches

This half term the children are using their knowledge gained in Science to design and produce a product that contains a working circuit. 


The children looked at current products that contain a working circuit, identifying the key parts. 


Focused Practical Task

One tricky part of our project was creating the box. It needed to hold all of the components and be able to display their design. We spent a lesson focussing on how to use nets to create three dimensional shapes. Children created a wide variety of shapes in varying difficulty. Some were very challenging and were tricky to assemble!
