Learning in Year 5

This term, Year 5 have been designing their own automaton toys using cams, based upon original Victorian toys.
This week we finally got to bring our designs to life!!
We learnt to use saws, drills and explored our full range of problem-solving skills to ensure our toys worked correctly and showed a full range of movement.
We then used our artistic skills to paint our characters to represent our own  interests, resulting a huge range of fantastic end products including, ballerinas, the solar system, rocket, clowns, nature and even the Easter Bunny!
