Carrying on with our moving vehicles!

During science we were reminding ourselves of how to make circuits for our D.T projects to
make moving, hand-made cars. we have already made the frames and attached the wheels, so we started to make the circuits.
We made one circuit with small lights,a batterry and a range of wires with crocodile clips on the end of them to transfer electricity from light to light.we also had a challenge to make a light switch from a small bit of card and a few paperclips.
In the picture above you can see some of us making switches to make the lights siccesfully go on and off
by using the switch. Once we have finished testing circuits we will make our own circuits to power our hand-made model cars.
Hopefully then we will get to decorate them to make them look a bit more like cars Because there is only the frame at the moment!

The Next stage of our moving vehicles!


This week we completed the next step in making our moving vehicles.

We put the wheels on the car and put the section that will hold the elastic band on.
Look at the picture above- we are doing well!

This took us an afternoon and Ben says "it was REALLY fun," and Jack says "it was a piece of cake," Not as easy for some other people though :-)

We also are working on the period after the war. We are looking at the seperate decades including 50s 60s 70s 80s and 90s

Stay tuned for the next publish :-)

Rock and Roll Dance

On Wednesday we spent the afternoon learning about Rock and Roll dance!

We had a great time learning rock and roll dance moves such as the hand jive.

Here we are doing DT and making our own moving toy cars. We are starting today by building the frame of the toy car. We have got three  pieces of spar wood. First we mesure the spar wood into pieces the length of 20cm x2, 9 a half x2 and 12cm x 3. then we saw the pieces into the correct length and glue all of the pieces together into a frame.  Then we add paper  triangles to strengthen the edges.
After that we use the three 12cm sticks and glue them into a right angle.

So far they look really good and it has been great fun:):):):):):)
