Reception class pupils build hibernation boxes for animals. They chose suitable materials to help keep the animals comfy and warm.
Key Stage 1 pupils looked at the features of a car then used this information to design their own. The pupils used axles and wheels to make their own cars. They had lots of fun following this by playing with them.
Lower Key Stage 2 pupils learnt about the Trojan war and how a wooden horse was used. Pupils then designed their own model of the Trojan Horse and finally used tools to make a wooden Trojan Horse.
Pupils then evaluated their project.
Upper Key Stage 2 pupils were investigating air raid shelters. They first found out about the different types of shelters built and the importance of them. Pupils used this information to come up with their own design and choose materials to replicated those used in the formation of air raid shelters. Pupils went on to build their shelters and finally tested them out to see if they would withstand objects being dropped on them.
In Upper Key Stage 2 during a science lesson, the pupils learnt about electrical circuits. Pupils then applied this knowledge to make their own working circuit.
