Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

Year 4 Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering Workshop


Year 4 became mechanical engineers and built marble runs. They investigated the forces used and tried to slow the marble down. The children worked in small teams and developed skills in working collaboratively, using their imagination and showing resilience by improving their run. As well as developing their teamwork skills, the children all had a fantastic, fun time.
