Moon Buggies

Design Technology in Class One!

Class One have been having great fun in Design Technology during this half-term’s Explorers topic. The children have designed, created, tested and then evaluated their own moon buggies.

Testing the finished product!

The children started with a design brief which was to make a vehicle for Bob the Spaceman to use to travel around the moon. They had to look at different chassis, axles and wheels on vehicles and then came up with the criteria for their own moon buggies. They followed their designs very carefully and even used saws to cut the axles. They are really pleased with their finished buggies

We're so proud of our finished buggies - not only did we learn lots of techniques for design, and used lots of new tools, we also had lots and lots of fun! Make sure you check out all our photos below.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
