Growing Together

DT in Year 1

In Year 1 this term the children have been learning about and constructing windmills in their DT lessons.  They have learned about the different parts of a windmill: the structure, axel and turbines.  They then used their understanding to design and make a windmill suitable for a mouse to live in.


They worked hard to carefully construct their windmills to ensure that the turbine moved.  In the afternoons, the children took their windmills outside to test if they worked. It was great fun working out what made the windmill move faster! Well done Year 1 for your fantastic perseverance with the project.
