Spring 2022


During the spring term we have been researching, designing and making our own moving toys. We have looked at various CAM mechanisms and experimented with the the different movements each offer. We then incorporated a CAM into our very own Easter themed toy.

Autumn 2021 - 2022

In the autumn term, Year 6 have been making our own hand puppets. We have practiced different stitching techniques before making prototypes out of paper. Once we were happy with our design, we made our own Christmas themed hand puppets using the sewing skills we learned.
