All the Fun of the Fair!

In West Base 2 we have made a start on our new topic All the Fun of the Fair. We will be designing and making our own model fairground ride, which must have a moving mechanism. Mr Newman came to visit us and show us several different ways to make a moving part. He also showed us how to safely and securely join different materials.

We enjoyed listening to Mr Newman

Mr Newman showed us how to use a glue gun safely.

 We learnt how to cut wire safely too.

Charlie was a 'sawing' success!

We hope to use a pulley in our designs as they worked very well. Watch the video below to see how Lawrence was able to move Mr Newman's ferris wheel.
