Home Learning 

Due: Wednesday 11th December

In Science and DT lessons we have been learning about how mechanisms work. We have been focusing on gears, pulleys and levers.

Please draw a diagram of any toys that you have played with that contain these mechanisms and label where the gears, pulleys or levers are.
