Year 3 have been exploring mechanisms in their Design Technology lessons this half term. The children were given the challenge of creating a monster which could move with a pneumatic. The children explored how a pneumatic worked and discussed how air can be pushed into an object to make it useful. The children designed and made their monsters then tested them with a piece of tubing and balloon. This was then blown up to see if the monsters mouth would open. The children were very successful with their creations.
