Electrical Systems - Year 5 designed and made alarms for a mode of transport using cardboard, tin foil and circuits. They formulated a step by step plan to guide making and gathered the equipment, materials and components. After the planning and making of them, they discovered that when they pressed down on them the two tin foil pieces connected to complete the circuit. On evaluation, some alarms didn't work and they discussed how they could improve them.
Structures - Frame Structures Year 5 have been working incredibly well in our DT lessons where they modelled and created their own bird hide structures.
