The children were excited to start a new Design Technology project this week. The week started off with some research into how toys move. The pupils had fun playing with wind up toys, a pull back mouse and toys with a lever mechanism. They learnt that all toys that move need a mechanism such as a lever, slider or pivot to function. The next day they made a zooming rocket to which they attached a slider so it could move through a starry night sky. The children took their time to carefully cut out the rocket – it was very tricky! The children were very proud of their zooming rockets. Then the children had a go at designing their own moving dinosaur picture. Next, the children will make and evaluate their moving picture.
