Science Week – wheelbarrow investigation

To round up the week, Beech class had the chance to use the substantial amount of K’Nex from Science Oxford to create their own wheelbarrows. This provided an extra level of challenge in comparison to a four-wheeled vehicle, which showed in their initial discussions before construction. After a week of challenges, they worked well in small groups or pairs to attempt to make a wheelbarrow strong enough to hold a book whilst in motion.
