DT project in Year 3 – moving MONSTERS!!
Monday 12th June | 7 comments
Year 3 have been busy, both last week and this morning, creating some moving monster using a pneumatic system. The children spent Wednesday morning investigating pneumatics and used syringes and tubing to try make a balloon inflate. They then went on to see how pneumatics can be used to make things move (such as car jacks and jack hammers). Below are some pictures of 3D in action!
Our next sessions were skills based. In these sessions the children were shown how to use a glue gun to join two pieces of wood, how to cut wood using a small saw, how to make joints and joins using split pins and card and they also practised their cutting skills. The children really enjoyed learning these skills and remembered to ‘Be Safe’.
Both classes then went on to design a moving monster using their findings to work out how the lid of the shoe box could be moved up. They have drawn detailed plans and used the correct vocabulary.We are really pleased with how these monsters have turned out!
