DT - Wooden Periscopes

Date: 18th Dec 2020 @ 8:56am

Year 5 applied all of the DT skills that they had learnt and practised in order to create their final periscope out of wood. They could choose which cutting and attaching skills to use as well as the types of joint that worked best for their product. We will then use our periscopes as part of a big game of hide and seek!

Date: 18th Dec 2020 @ 8:54am

Year 5 learnt how to safely saw, use craft knifes, hammer nails and apply their knowledge of joints in order to create prototype periscopes. They then altered their designs accordingly before starting their final piece.
