Brompton Bicycle: Key Stage 2 Resources
This resource, aimed at children aged 7-11, contains five design and technology projects that focus on bicycles. Providing many cross curricular links and opportunities to develop thinking skills, children are asked to: consider the needs of the rider, carry out research, communicate ideas, solve problems, work collaboratively and evaluate designs in light of the design brief. The activities can be used as 'one-off’ sessions, an extended project or as part of a whole school design and technology week. Teacher’s notes are provided as well as worksheets on the five activities which are: *Designing a bicycle - evaluate bicycle designs, then design bicycles for people with different needs
*Comfort - research and test materials as to their suitability for handlebar grips.
*Safety - design a sweatshirt for child to wear whilst cycling, considering safety, colour and style.
*Tyres - design a pattern for a tyre tread for a bicycle.
*Making an advertisement for a bicycle - design and make a television advert.
These activities have been produced by Brompton Bicycle. There is also a set of resources aimed at 5-7 year olds.
