Look what is happening in Year 1!

Carriages fit for a queen…

Friday 25th November | 6 comments

Year 1 have been busy designing and then making 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 body 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 and sticking. Did you know that pegs 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! Can your child tell you what they discussed during their evaluation? Does their vehicle match their initial design?

Here is some writing fit for a queen too. Can you spot the capital letters, full stops and conjunctions?

    Brilliant carriages! Daniel really enjoyed making his carriage and is very proud of it, I suspected it might be red when he came home in a red jumper and with red hands!
