DT Homework

Topic Overview

Our DT topic this half term is 'Mechanical Posters.' This topic gives the children opportunities to develop their understanding of mechanical systems. They will follow instructions on how to make different types of lever and linkage mechanisms. Year 3 will gain experience and knowledge to draw on when developing their own ideas. They will sketch a design based on their ideas, make a prototype, and then create their ‘Lever and Linkage Poster’ using the context of recycling. Finally, children will evaluate their finished product.


Friday 29th April

On Friday 29th April, Year 3 will follow instructions on how to make 'Clapping Hands.' I have attached the instructions below. Please could your child bring in enough cardboard before Friday to enable them to make their Clapping Hands mechanism. Thank you for your help with this!
