Design Technology

Friday 26th June

WALT: design with the user in mind, motivated by the service a product will offer


It's been  a long time now since the playgrounds have been closed and I'm sure that some of you are longing to play on the equipment especially that it is now summer and the weather is so nice. Here is a playground STEM challenge to keep you occupied and enthusiastic until the playgrounds open again. 


Your task is to plan and design your idea of a perfect playground. You need to think about and list what it should look like and what it should have. Draw a plan of what would feature in your perfect playground. You could draw the equipment or markings you would like or search for images on the internet and stick them on to your plan. Next for the fun part! Build a model of your perfect playground using collage materials (clay, straws, lolly sticks, string, cocktail sticks, foil, buttons, beads, pipe cleaners, paper, card, glue, tape). 


Please take your time over your STEM project and most importantly, have fun! When you are finished, please take a photograph of your work and upload it to the 'My Work' folder on Purple Mash.
