Year 6 DT – Wacky Racers!

Year 6 designed and made driving vehicles incorporating a working electrical circuit. They learnt all about mechanisms including pulley ratio and designed their vehicle in order to be the fastest or strongest car. They learnt about technical terms such as chassis, axles and bearings and used their knowledge of forces and friction to enhance its performance. Finally they made a very creative body to the vehicle to make them look like wacky racers!

Watch the video of racing them!

We are proud of our diverse cultural community and encourage all children to achieve their personal best, academically and socially. We believe that children flourish when home and school work together. We encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education and the life of the school. We aim to work with parents and carers to develop caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self discipline, self confidence and good manners alongside academic progress. We treat all of our pupils as unique individuals who will become independent learners and view their education as a positive experience.
