This week we finally completed our design and technology projects. Firstly the children coloured in a volcano and a pterodactyl outline. They were encouraged to add detail such as lava and eyes on the dinosaur. Next they had to carefully cut each shape out – it was really difficult cutting round the pterodactyl. After they each made a mechanism by attaching two levers with a split pin. Finally, the pupils assembled their moving dinosaur together. They had to be extra diligent to ensure that they did not glue down the lever so it couldn’t turn. Everyone had so much fun testing out their moving pictures.
