Moving Toys.

This week Year One have been introduced to a new subject – design and technology.  First we investigated how toys could move .  We discovered that some toys need to be wound up – like our toy caterpillars.  The children also learnt that some toys with wheels needed to be pulled backwards first to move forwards – we had fun investigating how far we could make a toy mouse travel across the carpet.  Other toys, that we played with needed a lever or slider to help them move.  We particularly liked how a wooden snowman could move his hat on and off his head.  Later on, the boys and girls used their new knowledge of toys to design a Santa popping out of a chimney.  Some children designed his boots bursting out of the chimney, whilst others drew his face.  Their designs were bright and colourful.  Now we can’t wait to make the toy itself.
