Year 2 design their own vehicles

Year 2 Japanese students have been learning about transport this term.

Students were invited to invent and design their own vehicle and they had the opportunity to come up with their own unique ideas.

“Some students invented a car airplane while some children designed a ship car. One student even came up with an idea of a bed car,” she said.

“Students then wrote descriptions of the vehicle such as its speed and size, and its functions, such as whether it is for land transport, sea transport or air transport, where it runs and where you can buy it.”

Once the students had drawn up their designs, it was time for them to get building.

Using recycled materials, students got creative and built their vehicles.

Students later presented their work.

“The students enjoyed showing their peers what they had made.”
