Making our own Vehicle!
In Design Technology we have been learning about vehicles before we go on to design then make our own! We began by researching different toy vehicles and looking at the important parts of them. Next we thought about our own design which we drew down then made a list of the materials we would need for it. After that it was time for the paint! The base colour was chosen and carefully applied. Using different papers and fixing techniques we then added parts to our vehicles to demonstrate their purpose; we have buses, ice-cream vans and racing cars to name a few!
Time for wheels and axles! We marked out the length of dowling we needed before using a saw to cut it down to size which was incredibly fun! Pushing on the wheels took a lot of our strength and a lot of 'I can't do it yet' but with perseverance we achieved! The next challenge is attaching the wheels and axles to the chassis.
Keep an eye here for progress! Take a look at the photos of us creating our vehicles so far, below.
