Design, Creativity and Technology
Term 4 has seen years 3 to 6 focus on Design, Creativity and Technology which develops students complex thinking skills and understanding that there is usually more than one solution to a problem. Students in year 3 have been creating and racing cars that roll, which has meant incorporating an axle that allows the wheels to spin. The year 5 students took part in an egg drop challenge where they had to protect eggs from the impact of a large fall.
After researching independently and in groups, all students constructed their ideas, overcoming problems if they arose. This allows students to create projects from the design stage through to completion and evaluation.
