Design Technology- Pneumatics

This term, we have been learning about pneumatics. We not only learnt the difference between pneumatics (air) and hydraulics (liquid) but how this technology is used in daily life.

Part of our project was to create and test a prototype of a pneumatic system. This helped us when we came to make our own model pneumatic Christmas toys. We worked together in pairs or small groups (using reciprocity) to design, make and test our pneumatic toys.

Please take a look at some examples of our learning.

School will be open again on Friday 3rd November 2023
