Class Two have been learning about mechanisms and levers in their Design and Technology lesson. They have made a simple mechanism using card as a lever and a split pin as a pivot. This learning will be used when they make their end product!
Class Two have worked really hard to design and create persuasive pictures with moving parts that uses levers and linkages. They have carefully planned their pictures, created prototypes and then made their final products which have been amazing.
Class 3 have been researching various stitch types and looking at the difference between hand and machine stitching.
We looked around our church for examples of embroidery, tapestry and stitching.
Some of the stitches we noticed included running stitch, cross stitch, blanket stitch and chain stitch.
Over the coming weeks we will be creating our own tapestries of a Luna landscape and perfecting our sewing skills.
Class 3 have been practising different stitches as part of our DT sewing project this half term, designing our own lunar surface as part of Stargazers! We have learnt running stitch, cross stitch, chain stitch and french knots so far.
