Synopsis

Stable Structures by Lynn Huggins-Cooper

D&T Workshop is a major new series of information books devised to inspire primary-age children to investigate, design and make a wide range of products using different technologies like levers, gears, cams, batteries, winding mechanisms, food technology and more. Each book explores a different set of products and the technology behind them. Pupils investigate existing products and then carry out focused practical tasks which provide opportunities to learn and practise the necessary skills, e.g. testing alternative designs, building a specific component, or learning to use tools safely. Each book ends with a full-scale design and make activity that encourages children to put into practice the skills, knowledge and understanding they have learned.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
