Castle Carts in Year 2!

Year 2 have had great fun this week in DT. They have designed, made and evaluated carts to carry the vegetables for the castle cooks! They had to ensure the wheels went round and were fixed securely to the cart. This involved measuring and cutting wooden axles accurately and selecting an appropriate method to fix them to the chassis of their cart. Some of them chose wooden clothes pegs, some chose straws, some chose small card axle holders and other made the hole straight through the box! Everyone was fantastic at solving problems as they went, resulting in successful moving carts! Take a  look!
