The Projects on a Page scheme of work was introduced to help primary schools in England implement the National Curriculum for D&T in an imaginative way. Based on universal principles of effective teaching and learning in D&T, it is also a valuable resource for schools in other parts of the UK and further afield.

This set of six planners focuses on Mechanisms and may be used in association with Learning about Structures and Mechanisms and a range of other Mechanisms teaching resources developed by the Association across all ages.

The planners included are:

  • Year 1/2 Mechanisms - Sliders and levers
  • Year 1/2 Mechanisms - Wheels and axles
  • Year 3/4 Mechanical Systems - Levers and linkages
  • Year 3/4 Mechanical Systems - Pneumatics
  • Year 5/6 Mechanical Systems - Pulleys or gears
  • Year 5/6 Mechanical Systems - Cams

Full guidance is given in the accompanying booklet showing how to use the planners to full effect and the context in which they should be used.

Each planner has 20-step planning guidance and accompanying teacher tips, a glossary, an example of iterative design appropriate to the project, and practical advice on using resources. Side 1 of the planners is supplied as an editable digital version that you can adapt and print out.

What teachers say:

“It is excellent! Skills are progressive and the way it's been written allows for teacher creativity and pupil voice.”

“It's so much stronger than previous publications. I love the fact that it's not prescriptive like previous material. It fits into topics/themes well and can be easily adapted by editing planning!”

"It's the practical application of the skills in an ideal design and make task that also links to a topic or context! Less paper work and delivered in a real, meaningful context. I love it!!”

“It’s brilliant!”
