This week in our topic teams we have been designing and building a crane.
Each group made a specific part of the crane and we discussed the different specifications needed for each part of the crane.
Once completed we were able to test the crane for strength; the results surprised us all!
In our design and technology group we have been exploring the tools and the skills we will need to create a useful product.
The children worked in groups to learn and practise sawing drilling and being able to join 2 pieces of wood with screws.
I must say that the children were brilliant and a big thank you to the year 5 and 6 chn for supporting the younger members of our team to use the equipment safely!
The products we that we will make are yet to be decided, however the children are keen to create frames to present their work.
Well done team!
