Inquiring into Design

Mar 15, 2017

Recently some of our students went on an educational visit to London Project Design (Mr Bill’s workplace) to inquire about the material ‘wood’ and to see how the properties of wood can be changed by machines. The students were able to see how the wood was when it came into the workshop and before it was changed into something else. They saw how today in the modern world, machinery can do complex cutting as well as simple tasks such as sanding. The students were able to try their hand at using a screw driver, hammer and manually sanded their own personalised wooden gift from Mr. Bill. They then decorated this in class and used the wooden shapes they had made to support their Maths learning.
