During STEAM week, Wenlock Class had a wonderful time working collaboratively to make their own Marble Runs out of shoeboxes, toilet roles, plastic cups etc. They had to design them so that a marble could run down the slopes in 10 seconds and problem solve to increase or decrease the marble’s speed on their run. The children completed time trials to see if they had been successful with their designs.
Another mission Wenlock Class were given was linked to their Deadly 60 topic. This was to design a transportation vehicle for a deadly animal. The children were required to build an electric vehicle using their new knowledge of circuit building from their last Electricity topic. The children used handsaws and vices to cut the doweling to correct lengths to make wooden frames on to which they stuck their circuit. The children then used different materials to construct the outer carriages following their designs. The results were fantastic. Well done Wenlock Class!
