Year 6 DT: Xmas Cards

Over the past couple of days, Year 6 have been investigating Christmas cards with moving parts. To create a Christmas card with pulleys and axles. Through trial and improvement, the children had to measure, cut and attach a disc that could display three different festive scenes. Following this, they planned, designed and created their own Christmas card that firstly had Santa delivering presents and then had him flying off to the next house. The children learnt about the importance of planning and the need for accuracy when measuring and assembling.
