Design and Technology Key Skills 17th June

This week’s key skills is on Yammer – it is also on the blogs (as you can see!) for those who cannot access Yammer at home. If there is no access to either, complete paper-based and Mr Prosser will put it online next week. Part 1 is still achievable as everyone received a paper-copy of the key skills.

Next week we are making our moon buggies as part of our Space/Design Technology project!
1) Therefore, at home we want you to collate any materials that you can think of that you could donate to the project either for your own use or a different group’s. Some examples are as such:
– Lego
– Meccano
– K’nex
– Yoghurt pots
– Plastic bottles
– Cardboard
Please understand that due to glue and other materials, non-disposable materials (such as Lego) may not be able to be sent home at the end of the project.

2) There are examples of motors being used in mini-cars shared below; they show how they can be made. Watch these and have a think how you could create your own. Comment with a reply: which one do you think was the best? Which one would you prefer to use? How could you change the model someone else has used in the video? Ideally reply on Yammer – but replying here is fine.

Again, if the videos are not accessible at home, we will sort this out next week.


Thanks and have a great weekend,
Year Six Team

  1. I’m going to make one tomorrow with my dad for Fathers day and bring a box of bottles, cardboard and bottle tops.
