CAM mechanisms

Year 5 were seriously fortunate to have two great D&T teachers from Telford Langley in to help create wooden CAM toys. It was a complicated process, with lots of components and new skills but the children rose to the challenge.

All about volume

Today we analysed Holst’s use of volume in the Planet Suite. We created graphs to track the changes in volume and discussed how musicians use notation to help understand this.  We even learnt some Italian along the way!

 

Fantastic homework!

I was extremely impressed this morning by the amount of effort that has been put into these homeworks over the weekend. It’s amazing to see children using their DT skills. These are toys which use a CAM mechanism to great effect.
