This week in Class 4 we are looking at shell structures. We started off by evaluating current products and decided what we liked and would use for our own product. We decided to use exciting font, pictures and a colour scheme on our product. It was essential our food product had an ingredient list too.
Next, we had a go at making 3D shapes from nets.
We learnt that pyramids were a nightmare to make, tabs were essential and worked best when in a trapezium shape. We created our design criteria: Design, make and evaluate a gift box for a family member for Christmas.
Our last task of the day was to start designing our own gift box. The children have worked really hard and been extremely enthusiastic.
Well done Class 4
