Year 5 had a fantastic visit from Junior Stem Lego. We built programmable monkeys out of Lego and then after building them we had to use different algorithms to programme them to move, speak and play different songs. We then learned how to use sensors to control them and get them to perform different actions.
Our DT project this term has been to design and make a pouch for the character of Zoe in our class text 'Floodland'. Zoe has a precious compass that she carries around with her and so our pouches are to hold this compass. We started by analysing different types of bags, exploring the different fastenings, construction techniques and materials used. We considered how designers have to think about the purpose of their design, who it is for and what it will be used for. We have enjoyed practising our sewing techniques on paper first before developing our technique by sewing our pouches. We are looking forward to adding the fastenings of our choice and finishing touches.
In DT we have been investigating different lever and slider mechanisms. We analysed using different materials for our sliders such as card, felt, wood, cloth, string and pipe cleaners. We also tried out different bases to see which worked best. We then designed our own working slider mechanism, where we had to think carefully about the different pathways that we wanted our objects to take.
