DT in action - Year 4

In year 4 the children have designed, created, played and evaluated our own musical instrument. They worked in groups and had a great time. 

This has involved them: 


  • Developing their own design criteria and use these to inform their ideas. 
  • Share and clarify ideas through discussion. 


  • Selecting materials and components suitable for the task. 
  • Measure, mark out, cut and shape materials and components with some accuracy 


  • Evaluating by referring to their design criteria as they design and make.
