Parent Open Afternoon has changed from Monday 1st July to Monday 8th July, this is due to Active Week

Wk ending 2nd November 2018

Today the children in Pentire participated in an exciting DT day. The task for their project was simple: to create a moving toy using a cam mechanism. Our first task involved researching how cam mechanisms function using the laptops. With the research completed, the children designed their toy. They considered their target audience and how their product would be appealing before sketching and labelling their design. The children then constructed their cam toys using a variety of tools and materials. Finally, to demonstrate our skills as designers, we evaluated our designs, considering how we could make our cam toys even better. The class had a superb day and enjoyed the practical activities.
