In Year 2 we have been investigating axles and whether a fixed axle or an unfixed axle would be most suitable for the vehicles, which we will be designing in the coming weeks.

We learnt how to construct and make both a fixed axle and an unfixed axle using instructional writing.

Here are some of the photographs of the stages involved in making different types of axles.

Keep a look out over the coming weeks to see our vehicle designs exploring both fixed and unfixed axles.
