Look what is happening in Year 1!

Vehicles fit for a queen!

Wednesday 26th November | 8 comments

Year 1 have been busy designing vehicles for the queen. First the children looked at wheeled vehicles and thought about the queen’s requirements. Can your child show you the axle, axle holder and chassis on a toy car? Next the children created designs and practised joining materials. Year 1 used lots of skills to build their vehicles including, sawing, stapling and sticking. Did you know that pegs, paperclips, pipe cleaners and card can all be used to make axle holders? The finished carriages and cars are certainly suitable for royalty and there is not a pumpkin to be seen!
