Y3 – DT exploring pneumatic systems

Apr 20, 2023Design Technology

This week, Y3 started their unit of work linked to toys. Over the coming weeks, they will be designing and making their own moving toys using pneumatic systems. To begin our learning journey, the children explored plastic syringes as a way of compressing air and creating movement. They explored what happened when air filled the syringe, was pushed out and prevented from being pushed out. Watch this space for some designs!
