Robins experiment with sliders.

This week Robins class were really excited to start a new Design Technology project.

This half term we will be focusing on mechanisms to make a moving story book.

We learnt about sliders and had a go at using them to make moving pictures.

We made rabbits jump up and down out of the magician's hat and a car drive along a road. We talked about direction and the forces that we were using to make our picture move too. The children are now keen to design and make their own moving pictures over the coming weeks.

Maybe you could look at home or in the library to see if you can find any story books with moving parts, do they use a slider to move?
