DT – Making Fire Engines

This afternoon, we began learning about wheels, axles and chassis. The children explored two different kinds of axle; fixed axles and moving axles. They had a go at attaching these to a chassis in preparation for when we make our fire engines in a couple of weeks time.

A visit from the Fire Brigade

This morning, Class 1 were visited by the fire fighters from Christchurch Fire Station. They enjoyed learning all about the tools that fire fighters use today, which, is very different from what was available back in 1666. Their favourite parts were when the fire fighters sprayed the hose and they got to listen to the very loud sirens!
