Build a Bus

KS1: Technology & Mathematics

In this session students will become real engineers. By using gallery investigation and helping to build our magnetic bus, children will learn the different parts that make up a bus and the shapes that can be discovered from within.

Please Note: Pupils help to complete a magnetic 2 dimensional bus as the " Build" in this session to strengthen their understanding of the properties of shapes. Pupils no longer build a 3 dimensional foam bus.

Dates Available: Mondays & Tuesdayss - Subject to availability

Session times: 10:15, 11:30, 13:00 

Session length: 60 minutes
