Year 1 have be looking at different mechanisms. Firstly we looked at moving books because we linked D&T and our English theme fairy tales. We researched different books that moved with flaps, pop out parts and buttons to make a sound.
We spent our first lesson looking at how things move and why they move
We looked at pop up/moving books.
We made our own moving pictures with sliders and wheel mechanisms
We made propeller boats out of a plastic bottle, rubber band and a lolli stick
