What we created

This term we have four new lego kits. We have one in each class and we rotate them because these kits help us to build the vehicles and machines we have been talking about in our Inquiry Unit on Transport The kits also have simple mechanisms in them which help the machines and vehicles we build work.
Here are some of our great stories about what we have built and how we built it :
