Year 3 have had fun developing their engineering skills this half term. The task was to design, build and test an elastic band propelled car, which is precisely what they have managed to do! From the beginnings of the design stage, through to the final stages of designing a fair test to see whose car travels the furthest, the children have taken charge their project. The highlight, for me, was seeing how thrilled the children were when they figured out how to propel their cars without the children actually pushing, pulling or catapulting them! Congratulations goes to Toby whose car went the furthest, and to Harry who was the first one to figure out how to propel the car.
