Science and DT car build project for Upper Key Stage 2

(0)
A great resource that my colleague and I completed over a 1/2 term in the afternoon lessons to build a car out of wood and plastic - wheels parts etc we bought off EBay and YPO catalog for the children who completed one between 2 - this used their maths skills, construction skills and science forces skills as they have to build an elastic band powered car that would hold a 1kg weight and travel down the school corridor - It went really well as a project that we ran for 2 different year groups. This would work for early secondary school DT also and is a great cross curricular lesson and activity - any questions do ask away !

(0)
An ideal Powerpoint and stand alone lesson to introduce the story The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - A fantastic activity to get the children ( Y3,4,5) to ask questions about the text working in pairs or bigger groups. It worked really well if the question sheet was printed off in A3 - discuss with them the type of question they could ask and which one they would get more information on e.g open rather than closed type of question. Although not the start of book it proved successful to get the class thinking about the new text - enjoy !!
