In DT Year 2 were given the challenge to design and make a moving vehicle. After investigating different types of vehicles and learning about wheels, axles and chassis, everyone designed their own. There were cars, lorries, ice cream vans, racing cars, buses – so many creative ideas. The children then worked extremely hard making the body of their vehicle and decorating it with such care and attention.

The children then worked in small groups to evaluate each design. They had to discuss what worked well and what needed to be improved. We even tested which vehicle travelled the furthest down a ramp!

Brilliant work everybody. Future designers in the making!
