Flange Joints and L Braces
Do you know a flange joint from a slot join? Fear not the children in Year 1 can enlighten you. In DT we have been studying and designing free standing structures. We have investigated the function of playground equipment and how it is made. We then focused on the different ways materials can be joined together and learnt to make; slot joins, L-braces, flange joints and tab joins. Today we have designed a piece of playground equipment and we cannot wait until Monday when we will be building our designs from the piles of recycling in our classrooms.
We have also enjoyed creating out own superhero fruit or vegetable based on the Supertato book and have described our character using fantastic adjectives. In maths, we have been revisiting multiplication and division.
