KS1/2 Design and Technology – Fundamentals of Design – Virtual Pets

Teaching design fundamentals through a ‘virtual pets’ project This programme explores one approach to teaching systems and control. The theme is ‘Virtual Pets’, which KS2 teacher Pauline Hannigan delivers over a 3 day period to her mixed Year 5/6 class.

After the project, Pauline, together with Cornwall LEA D&T Adviser David Prest, and fellow primary teacher Teresa Wilton, look back at footage filmed during the 3 days. They discuss which aspects of the project they feel other teachers can draw upon in their own classrooms.
