In the run up to Christmas, Year 2 had been working on their Design Technology topic; Winding Mechanisms. Following the exploration lesson, the children decided to design and make their own winding mechanism to be used during the Great Fire of London. They decided to make a chimney with a bucket attached which could wind up and down to help put the fire out.
The children began by painting a tube as the chimney and then painting their buckets.
The children then painted their buckets.
