Year 9 are coming towards the close of a highly skilled D & T project. All pupils have designed and made a bottle opener. We started off this work with a rectangular aluminum strip. Our task was to design the contours needed for the bottle opener, then cut these out and present a final piece of work that has been filed down and polished.
A large part of this project has been about the pupils being able to make the correct choice when deciding which tools to work with. The filing down and polishing of the bottle openers offered a wide range of different files to select. Safety issues have also been a large part of this project.
A selection of our Year 9 pupils explain more about their D & T work in the video above.
