DT Day

DT Day

 

The children had a go at making moving toys for the last week of term. They started by sketching their designs and thinking about the elements they need and how they will create their toy. They all showed great independence and determination when making their toy from cardboard. We were trying to create a linear movement by using a cam mechanism - unfortunately we found it very difficult to make an effective movement! But the children tried very hard, with some even managing to make it move by securing the cam in place. A brilliant learning exercise of resilience and trial and error. Even though some cams didn't work, the children still made a brilliant selection of toys that look great and can be moved manually instead.
