Thank goodness the school computer knows what its doing! Today in y1 ( 5/6 yr olds) we drew toys using simple shapes - squares, rectangles, circles, semi-circles, triangles and ovals. 

We also sketched toy vehicles, including motorbikes! I don't think this is too bad for a 5 yr old!

A traffic jam!


In the afternoon we made 3d versions of our vehicles so that they could be played with. We used words like 'chassis' and 'axle' to help understand the component parts. The body was formed from a folded piece of card, detailed on both sides.

This underside shot shows the simple construction.
