We have been busy in Team 1 this week. The children have enjoyed the process of designing, making and evaluating their own moving dinosaurs. First we looked at the shapes of dinosaurs. We then practised cutting carefully and safely. The children were then given the opportunity to explore pivot and slider mechanisms - some showed great initiative with this. The design process involved detailed drawing, labelling and really thinking about the finished product. Day 2 was even more fun! We got to making quite quickly, showing super scissor skills. Each child made their own dinosaur and personalised it further by painting it too. We are pleased to say that all the dinosaurs looked amazing and...they all move!
Here's a few photos to capture the project.
