Science Week – Pneumatic trucks

We are incredibly proud of the children’s achievement on Wednesday, showing such patience and resilience during a challenging construction task. They produced their own pneumatic trucks whilst taking on new skills and knowledge around the construction of a vehicle. They developed their own chassis using careful measurements, dowels and wheels before working on their ‘dump truck’ mechanism using a balloon and plastic tube. There was a great sense of achievement at the end of the day and immediate requests to put their trucks to the test, both in terms of dumping objects and the speed of the truck!
