DT Day-World War 2 Shelters

As part of our learning in design and technology, we have worked in groups to design and make a Second World War Shelter. We learnt how to construct a jinx framework in order to ensure a strong structure. We had two design criteria:

  • Our shelter needed to be strong to withstand bombing!
  • Our shelter needed to look authentic.

Throughout the day we were assessed on: our ability to work as a team; to use time and materials efficiently and to keep our work space clean and tidy.

In order to evaluate our shelters we tested them by dropping a tennis ball from an increasing height we also discussed how authentic each design was.
