Design Technology in Year 5

In DT, Year Five are making toys or games which include a moving cam mechanism.

Last week we made the frames for our moving toys, cutting wood and learning how to create strong joins. This week we have moved on to adding the moving cam mechanism. Lots of thinking and problem solving skills were needed, as well as precise measuring.

The children were incredible, working through the process and helping each other. When one of the class discovered a problem and worked to overcome it, they became an ‘expert’ and were able to give advice to help other children overcome similar problems.

The games are taking shape now and we have plenty of future engineers in the making.

Well done Year 5!
