Different mechanisms in Year 1

Year 1 have been exploring moving books in D&T.

We have been looking for different mechanisms such as sliders and levers. We discussed the purpose of these mechanisms and how they worked.

Here are some quote from the children about this project:

"Sliders move something from side to side." 

Ebrah - Butterfly class

"Sliders and levers make books more interesting."

Christian - Dragonfly class

"I was able to find a slider." 

Winter -Grasshopper class

"I really enjoy reading books with sliders and levers." 

Jasmine - Ladybird class
