In DT, the children in Year 1 and 2 were looking at the theme of wheels and axles to create their own moving vehicles. They looked at a variety of toy vehicles to see how they moved and created their own design using those wheels and axles. They worked collaboratively, looking at how to make a chassis using wood, accurately measuring out their parts, cutting these with a saw and then using hot glue to assemble them. They reinforced the corners using triangles and then attached the wheels to the axles. The final step was to design and make the rest of the vehicle. The children had a fantastic time making their own vehicles and got to test them out together once they had finished.
