Listen to an audio clip

It's of a very special garden shed. We've pictured it at a slight angle so one side and the front of it are showing. Start at the top of the page, in the middle, and move your fingers down. Can you find a circle with lots of ridges around the edge of it? It's a cog wheel and it's got a thin wire passing through the middle of it. Trace along the wire to the left. This grey shape is a handle. Move back right along the wire, over the cog wheel to the other end where you'll find another grey handle. Now let's explore the roof. It's dark green and made of planks of wood. Just below the cog wheel there's a skylight window.
