mediumblue

Summary

This programme explores how a project on virtual pets can effectively teach design fundamentals such as control systems.

Key Stage 2 teacher Pauline Hannigan delivers the project over a three-day period to her mixed Year 5/6 class.

After its completion, Pauline looks back at footage filmed during the three days with Cornwall LEA D&T advisor David Prest and fellow primary teacher Teresa Wilton. They discuss which aspects of the project they feel other teachers can draw upon in their own classrooms.
