Saving the Day Invention Workshop for KS1

This STEM Workshop is perfect to get your KS1 pupils working collaboratively and thinking creatively with hands-on invention and design activities.

They'll also be problem solving, collaborating and thinking creatively as they learn design concepts and skills linked to the Design & Technology National Curriculum.

"The workshop was great fun, pitched correctly and really easy to manage with the resource list provided. My class loved it!"

The workshop will take around an hour in total, though it can be made to last longer.

Pupils start by learning about inventions and specifically how inventions solve problems. We take part in an invention challenge to save the day of a character from a fairy tale, linking to multiple areas of the Design & Technology KS1 National Curriculum as well as literacy. You can even change the character to suit your own topic or book.

There's also a practical engineering challenge at the end which you can do to extend the learning on another day if you prefer, using any junk modelling resources or craft sticks and tape.

What you get:

  • Video lesson made to be interactive with easy to follow instructions to pause and do activities, meaning all the planning and teaching is done for you.
  • Equipment List with simple resources like paper and post-it notes.
  • Teacher Information Sheet telling you what we cover, the National Curriculum Links and some follow up ideas to extend the learning.
  • Parent Information Sheet to include parents in their children's learning.

You can use the workshop with as many KS1 classes as you like for a whole school term on your own schedule.

This is the second part of the workshop, designed to be completed after Part 1.
