Design Technology…20th April…Y6

Not long to go until SATs week, and as a way of proving that at St Columba’s Primary education is not narrowly restricted to English and Maths, Y6 this week began work on our Design Technology project which has proved so popular in recent years: building an electric-powered car.  The vehicle must meet the following criteria: it must be able to be controlled by a switch to travel backwards and forwards; it must be able to travel over 3 metres in a straight line; it must be able to climb to the top of a one metre, 30 degree ramp; it must look aesthetically pleasing.

The pupils set to work with gusto, blissfully unaware that they were doing Maths and English after all, cunningly disguised as something else.
