At the end of last term, Year 5 (classes SC and JT) worked together to design and make cam toys. We investigated how cam toys worked and we used this to help us design our own toys. Next, we made our cam toy based on our design and found solutions to the problems we encountered. Finally we evaluated our toys and made suggestions on how we could improve them. It was great fun and a lovely way to end the term.
