Computing / Design Technology

LO:

 

For those of you who didn't see last week's Design your own Amazing Bedroom task, here are the documents I posted.  Last week, I suggested doing some research and getting some ideas, however I know lots of you went on to create plans and digital designs.

This week, I suggest you make sure you have done last week's work, making sure you've got plenty of ideas.   I've added a further research sheet where you could compare some specific makes and models for some of your ideas, but this is optional.

 

What I would really like you to do this week, is have a go at making a 3D model of your dream bedroom. You could use an old shoe box, or other packaging you have (which you're allowed to use)  or even use Lego!
