Windermere - DT Automata Toys

Lesson: Design and technology

Class: Miss L Pool - Windermere Year: 2023 - 2024

This week, Windermere have been creating their own Automato toys. They were inspired by Victorian style toys and they chose a Christmas theme for their creations. At the start of the week, they measured and cut wood to create the frame before gluing it together. They then moved on to making the cams and followers that allowed their toy to move before adding their festive characters and backgrounds. Amazing teamwork shown and some very high quality final creations!
