This half term, as well as our local area, we have been looking at the transport that takes use around our local area and beyond.

We have spent some time comparing transport:

What form of transport would you use to go to Lakeside? Or to London? Or how about Africa?

How are these different?

We also discovered that in the past they didn’t always have the many types of transport that we have today. In fact, one of the first forms of transport was called a ‘Sedan Chair’, which involved two people carrying a chair for someone else to sit on! Wow, how things have changed!

Having explored all of these types of transport, we had a go at creating our own…

We used recycled materials to build the different parts of our vehicles and then added axel and wheels, so that our vehicles actually move!

Have a look at our different vehicles with their whizzing wheels! Can you guess what they are?
