In DT (design and technology) Class 5 have been making frame structures which are stable. We made prototypes using lots of different resources like matchsticks and gumdrops or newspaper and tape. With each prototype we found new ways of making a structure stable including triangulation and securing joins or weak points. Our final activity was a parent activity which we loved. It was nice to have our parents in to help us and share our ideas with. Arjun said ‘I liked trying to build the highest tower, that was a good challenge to start off with’, Zach said ‘I loved how I got to design my own final piece and make my frame separate using a saw and bench hook’. Finally, Mrs Martindale said that she loved how everyone’s final pieces were so different’.
