In Year 5, we have made moving space buggies as part of our learning in DT. We created intricate designs, accurate wooden frames and working electrical circuits to produce our amazing prototypes.
In Year 5, we have been creating algorithms using a program called Crumble. We have been learning about input and output. Inputs are the signals or data received by a system and outputs are the signals or data sent from it.
In Year 5, we have been investigating the effects of air resistance on our own spinners that we created. We went into the hall to drop the spinners to see how fast they fell.
