Our Inventive Week In Year 4

Date: 20th Jan 2017 @ 2:02pm

Our Literacy focus this week has been creating and explaining how contraptions work. The children have really enjoyed it and have put alot of effort and passion into this piece of writing. The inspiration has been the crazy contraptions thought up by the hilarious team that is Wallace and his (more than dedicated) companion Gromit. You can see all of the ingenious inventions that this dynamic duo have created:

Turbo bin.
My idea is to make a bin that cleans houses , the streets, cities and earth
It works from your own hands at the control panel
It has a V12 battery what operates 24 hours
It will have cameras, GPS Radar, a weight limit of 2 tons, two arms with a vacuum hole, it has sturdy wheels . Believe me , the world will turn into a clean wonderland. (Arjun bali)

DIY robot
It is a contraption that does anything you tell it to do. It also has a microphone that you speak into . If you told it to make you breakfast it would go and do it.
You control it with a joystick which is attached to a computer. It also has a camera on it that is how you see where it is going. Rylee Wharton
