Design and Technology.


We are starting a new topic on D and T and we are looking at toys with wheels.


Look around at home and see if you have anything with wheels on it for example a toy car, a pram, a monster truck, a wooden toy that can be pulled along. Look at it with an adult. 

Which is your favourite? Why do you like it the most?

How does it work?

Do you know what the parts are called that make up this toy? Can you see the axle? How many wheels does it have?


Sketch a picture of the toy and label it too.


If you have access to the internet, and can use it safely with an adult's permission, research toys with wheels? What can you find?
