Class 3 have started making their World War II vehicles.
The first part of the project was to make a sturdy frame.
The children used tools to measure and cut the wood before sticking it together with ‘jinx’ corners to make a jinx frame.
Next steps are to attach the axles and wheels to the frame.
With the frames complete and the children waiting for the glue to dry, the class investigated different axles they could use on their vehicles.
The children used a variety of equipment and tools for the investigation.
Some ideas worked better than others and the class were able to see and point out why different ideas worked better.
Well done to Class 3 for finding different solutions to having wheels that turn with an axle and a frame.
Our next steps are to attach the motors to the axles for the wheels to be powered by batteries.
