Designing and making vehicles

Designing and making vehicles


Last Tuesday class 4 drew a design of a vehicle. They had to label their drawings and think about what materials and equipment they would use. The following day they used wooden dowel, wooden wheels and cardboard to make a chassis. Once they were made they used them to race in the corridors and used ramps to go down. Each group had a race and Bobbie won overall. They had a brilliant afternoon and had lots of fun. On Thursday they added another box which was stuck onto the chassis and drew their designs on it. This week they added details such as headlights, number plates, aerials, windows etc. Finally they will be painted. Each model vehicle looks very individual
