DT in Year Four

The Year Four children have been disassembling and investigating a range of packaging today to learn how boxes are made from 2d nets. They identified the faces, glued tabs and interlocking tabs to understand all the different parts needed to construct a box. They were also introduced to the CAD (computer aided design) program on Purple Mash, which we will be using to design our gift boxes before printing the nets and constructing them. 🙂
