Year 6 Design and Technology – Anderson Shelters

Year 6 have started learning about World War II. During our Design and Technology day the children were learning about air raid shelters. Who invented them, where and when they were used?

The class were challenged to create a structure using only 5 sheets of A4 paper and half a metre of sellotape to support a large, heavy book.

The children were then taught about different joints that can be used in the construction of building different structures. Using cardboard they were then challenged to create different joins.
