DT - constructing vehicles with two different chassis’s

We have been continuing to explore vehicles as part of our DT topic this term. Today, we have been learning about axels, wheels and chassis. Mrs Goldsworthy set us the challenge of working together in pairs to construct two different models; one where the axels are attached to the chassis and another where the axels are loose. 
After working together to make the two models, we tried them out on the carpet to check that they moved. Some us did need to adjust the depth of our chassis so the wheels could touch the ground or modify how the wheels were made secure from falling off.
