DT Moving Fire Engines

In Design Technology Year 1 have been making toy fire engines. We have linked it to our topic of old and new toys and The Great Fire of London. The children explored existing toy vehicles and how the wheels help them move. They then ‘tinkered’ with different materials to see what would work well to build the chassis and the wheels. The children then designed and made their fire engines in teams and along the way they made changes to keep improving their designs. Year 1 were excellent at working together in teams to achieve their goal and the fire engines look fantastic!
