In year 5 we have been busy making these moving toys. We have used our knowledge of pulleys to create these.
First we designed our toy and used this plan throughout the process
Whilst we were making these toys we noticed that the rotary movement created a linear movement.
Finally we evaluated the finished products.
This is what we had to say about them…
‘The pulley toy was fun to make because we had to saw pieces of wood to create the frame. We also used hot glue guns!’ – Joey Britton
‘It was very fun making the toy, especially when we had to create the pulley system.’ – Kizzy Foley
‘I found it a little tricky because the glue gun section was really fiddly, but I am proud of my toy!‘ – Madison Crane
