Strong roots for flourishing futures

DT Day in year one! 

Year one had a great day last week! 

Between our series of Christmas concerts, we found time to make our vehicles. First we talked about how we could make the wheels move, and discussed how glue or tape wouldn’t work. 
After investigating some of the toys from reception, we learned that they had something going through the middle of the wheels called an ‘axle’.  
We then made our own cars, trucks or lorries using an axle to ensure they could turn. 
To finish off we painted and designed our vehicle. 
All the children really enjoyed the process!
