Designing and Making Carriages Fit for a King or Queen


As part of our Design Technology curriculum this half term,  we enjoyed designing a carriage for a king or queen with axles and wheels. We investigated how wheels worked and then drew up our own designs. All of the carriages were very different and we used our maths skills to measure how much dowel we needed to make our axles. Then we carefully sawed the correct length and fitted it with the wheels to our carriages.
