Year 5’s turn their hand to inventing.

Whilst the Year 6's were out at the Legacy Games, the year 5's of the 5/6 classes had a go at inventing a new form of transport.

Their objective was to design a new mode of travel using only materials they could find at home or school. In small groups, they first jotted down, sketched, shared and discussed ideas before, togther, coming up with a final design. They had to think carefully about the appropriateness of materials and decide on how they would fix everything together.

Although some of the final designs are still yet to be finished, Miss Ayliffe was very impressed with their imaginative ideas and the way they worked collaboratively together.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to actually build our designs; rubber dinghys and hamster wheels are not in the current budget!
