Over the past few weeks, Year Five have been designing and making moving toys that use CAM mechanisms. They have had to think hard for themselves and really persevere to overcome problems as they arise. The Year Fives have worked so well as a team to support each other with the making process and have learned the importance of talking through their engineering problems with each other to help them find solutions. Their cutting, sawing and joining skills have been really precise and the children have understood the importance of measuring twice before they cut in order to avoid mistakes.
Year Five were able to take home their completed CAM toys today. They should be really proud of the completed results. Well done!
