Afternoon Subjects


Design Technology


Today you are going to start to make your aqueduct. To begin with read the success criteria below and complete the activating prior knowledge task.




Look at your aqueduct plan from last week and remind yourself of your design. Remember, water needs to be able to flow through your aqueduct, so it will need to have waterproof elements and it will need to be built with a slight slant in the tunnel to allow to happen. You can adapt your designs if your find that your plan needs changing as you go. That is all part of the design process.


You have two weeks to complete this lesson, today and one afternoon next week. 


Remember to complete your project on a flat, safe surface. Take care when using scissors and ask an adult for help if you are unsure about anything.
