Year 2 enjoyed learning about axles and wheels as part of our DT topic. They were challenged to create a moving vehicle using K’Nex. This task sounded much easier than it was and required lots of problem solving, team work, peer teaching and perseverance.

The children found making axles and wheels challenging as they had to make sure that the wheels were secure and did not move. Their next challenge was to make and attach a chassis.

The children had such a wonderful time creating and they couldn’t wait to test them on the ramps at the end of the lesson. Well done everyone!
