Unit 1A: Moving Pictures and Science 1D: Light and Dark
From the Nuffield foundation, this report, developed from the QCA schemes of work, is an exemplification of a pilot in which design and technology QCA unit 1A (Moving Pictures) was linked with science units 1C (Sorting and using materials) and 1D (Light and dark).
Children were asked to make a collage on the theme of Christmas, and then to incorporate a simple moving part. The activity allows children to practise skill such as designing the collage, choosing materials, cutting and sticking.
The collage can be used to get children to think about light, dark and shadows as well as stimulate creative story telling.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
