Design Technology (D.T)

It would be useful for pupils to continue with their technical drawing skills, to enable them to present better design ideas for a variety of future product design activities.

One example might be to take a small object like an ornament or child’s toy and draw this from 3 different angles – Perhaps top, front and side. The technical name for this is ‘orthographic projection.’ The three images should be coloured in carefully and any annotation could be added to make details of the chosen object clearer.

Start with a simple object and increase the challenge by selecting more detailed and complicated objects when confidence increases.
