KS2-Structures

This list supports learning about structures including packaging, sculptures, buildings, bridges and planes with 7-11 year-olds. There are lots of ideas for developing skills used in D&T through focussed practical tasks, so children are able to apply these techniques to the designs that they make. The resources provide opportunities to explore different structures looking at the materials they are made from, how they are joined together and how string they are.  There are a range of authentic contexts for children to design, make and evaluate their own designs and made any modifications they feel are needed to make them suitable for the purpose and audience that they have been designed for.
