Hey all I've got Year 2 and I've got a project in mind, but have no idea where to start! We're going to be reading 'Traction man' and I want them to eventually design and make a prototype of a new toy. We will have links with the local DT secondary school children who will come in and work with my class in groups to talk about their designs and steer them in the right direction in terms of practicalities and materials etc. I then want my class to present their designs in a 'Dragon's Den' type presentation and my headteacher has suggested I get some real toy manufacturers/business people in to be the judges to make it a 'bigger deal'... the winning toy will then be made 'properly' in the Secondary DT department.... This is going to be 6 weeks worth of work.. but not sure where to start? I've contacted main manufacturers and local toy retailers asking for help, but no luck... Also.. is there any way the winning toy can get mentioned in a newspaper etc? Or is this all good in theory but not in reality?! Any advice? Thanks!
