Wonderful Wagons!

Last term our focus for Design and Technology was on vehicles.

The children learnt all about the important parts of a vehicle such as the axles and chassis.

Working to a brief the children were all able to design and build their vehicles, all having 4 wheels, 2 axles, a chassis and somewhere for a Lego person to sit safely.

The children that had the opportunity to race their vehicles down a ramp in pairs to see how successful they were. All the children really enjoyed seeing their masterpieces in action! Unfortunately, a lot of Lego people did fall out and a few wheels came off! WHOOPS!

From this the children then evaluated their vehicles and have learnt what they would do differently next time to make their vehicles more successful. One common idea for next time was to create seatbelts for the Lego people so they didn’t fall out!
