Year 5 DT Day

This week, Year 5 had a DT Day with the aim of making a moving toy. They started the morning by researching ideas about animals to inform their designs. They thought about how the animals move, their appearance and their habitat. Then, they watched some videos to identify how cam mechanisms work and they drew some diagrams and labelled the key parts. After that, they worked in small groups to explore cam movement. They made simple mechanisms with a snail cam to identify how this moved the follower. They then thought about the final designs for our moving mechanism. They followed step by step instrutions to make the moving animal toys. They made a box that stored the cam mechanism and added the cam, follower and rotating handle.
