Spring 1 week 6 (DT Week)

5 White have had a very busy week this week. As a class we have come to the end of our Sciences forces module which the children have clearly enjoyed and achieved. In maths we have taken the opportunity to consolidate our learning of fractions which will prepare the children nicely for next half term.

We have also enjoyed a fantastic project week this week designing and creating some amazing moving toys. This project illustrates 5 Whites understanding of cams mechanisms, it has been a real pleasure to see the children’s ideas come to life as well as the level of effort shown by all.

Well done and thank you for a great week 5 white.

Have a great weekend

  1. The features of a cam mechanism are a follower and cam. A cam is a rotating object which spins round which makes the follower go up and down or spin around because of the gap.

    A cam mechanism is a rotating or linear movement that moves around or up and down. Like the toys that we made. The components are the cam (there are lots of different ones) and the follower
