It was a tense day on Wednesday as the results of the Great Class 4 Car race were revealed….

Everyone in class 4 had managed to design and build a working (mostly) car, and I was amazed at the creativity and imagination shown in this year’s range of vehicles. The races were held on Monday afternoon and each car could be entered in as many categories as its owner wished.

There were a few issues with directional control, and one or two vehicles seemed to be going in circles…but overall the cars were surprisingly quick and nearly all managed to make it through the afternoon in one piece 🙂

This DT project was all about team work, and there was a prize for the team with the best average in the speed race which was won by Ella, Beau B, Noah, Fin, Molly G and Poppy with a time of 8:75 secs – amazing!

There was also a prize for the team which supported each other and worked together the best over the whole project and this went to Georgia, Sam, Lottie, Isobel, Elijah and Amie.

Well done to everyone in class four as this was a tricky project and eveyone worked hard. Thanks to all of the parents who came in to help with the building, and a special thanks to Mick Cooke who came in for all our sessions and helped out on race day – we wouldn’t have managed without you! 🙂
