Following on from sketching the vehicles on the playground on Monday, Class LH have also discussed what vehicles are used for - ie transporting goods or people. We then examined a variety of vehicles and talked abut the wheels, the lights, doors etc and how they were good for their purpose.
We have designed our own vehicles and using a range of resources created our own vehicles. We have a range of cars, army tanks, caravans, buses, aeroplanes, lorries and vans.
Using the plan to work our the wheel base for the army tank.
Problem solving - the axles were quite tight for the wheels to be pushed on so had to adapt the wheels.
Sharing resources and teamwork.
Army tank and a caravan, complete with convertible bed and pillows!
Cargo lorry and a bus.
We used our plans to help us and have thought about what we would do differently next time.
