Research and design our own product

Year 6 have been looking at money over the last few weeks.

We looked at why we need money, how it can be earned and used for different jobs.

We then went on to research and design our own product. We looked at all the different specifications that needed to be considered:

► Size
► Function
► Materials
► Durability
► Cost
► Aesthetics
► Safety
► Target market
► Weight

All these are very important when thinking about making a new product.

The class had a lot of fun thinking about a variety of functions to put into their designs.

We had designs such as:
• A floating bed with some super features,LED lights, rocking motion and phone charger
• A smart watch that has a strap which changes with your heartbeat
• Boots that help you boost off the ground
• A jacket that keeps you heated in the winter and cool in the summer
• An advanced car
• And some others…

Here are some of the designs.
