Woodpecker class made these fantastic monochrome 3D sculptures in Art. Firstly, we brainstormed many designs in our Art books before choosing our favourites.
DT - Mechanisms, cams, pulleys & levers
In Design Technology Woodpeckers investigated mechanical systems such as cams, pulleys & levers. We used the design process of RESEARCH - DESIGN - MAKE - EVALUATE to create a moving toy using at least two cams.
Woodpeckers studied the work of surrealist, Spanish artist Jean Miro and compared his work to other abstract artists. We had great fun experimenting taking our pencils for a walk and were inspired to create a piece of printed art in the style of Miro.
