Year 5’s Photo frame design investigation

For our Design Technology, Year 5 have been investigating ways to create photo frames to display their excellent Click Click Capture photographs.


With the task of using only newspapers and sellotape, and a time limit, the children created structures that needed to balance and stand.

The children collaborated, demonstrating great team work. The variety of stands was impressive.

Each of their designs reflected a great understanding of the need for strong joins and a wide base to balance.

The children then reflected on their designs  – what worked well and what they could improve, preparing themselves for their next steps in learning.
