During Autumn Term Year 2 looked at different winding mechanisms. We designed our own winding mechnaism and made it into a chimney where we had to get santa up and down the chimney using our winding mechanism. We used a wide range of materials including, dowel, string, wheels, sellotape, blue tac and cardboard to make our Winding Santas.
During Spring Term we designed and made a glove puppet in the character of a famous London job. Mrs Woods taught us how to sew and then we followed our designs to make our glove puppet into our chosen character. We made either a Beefeater, a London Guard or a Policeman. When we were designing our puppets we made prototypes to help us decide which was the best way to join the front and back of our puppets.
