Junk transport transformations!

We have been busy planning and constructing a form of transport using recycled junk and materials.  We chose from the four forms of transport that we saw on our transport trip - train, coach, boat or aeroplane.

We started by planning our model - we designed it and labelled the parts with the materials that we were going to use.  We had the choice of a lot of junk modelling resources, including egg boxes, yoghurt pots, bottle lids, boxes and plastic tubs.  We then listed our equipment, including materials needed for cutting and fixing it all together.  Here are some of our plans.





Then we used our plans to help us construct our models.  We used masking tape, sellotape and PVA glue to fix it all together before painting and decorating our models.  Here are some examples of how we transformed junk into transport!

"I used string to join the carriages together." - Holly
"I've made an aeroplane with turbines." - Melisa
"I used lollysticks to make a propella." - Harpreet



"I used felt for the train wheels." - Polly


"I used card for the wings." - Baxter
Look at our junk transport!
