Racing Roman Chariots

This week, Year Six have been making Roman chariots in Design Technology lessons. The brief was to construct a Roman chariot that could hold cubes and race along a track. First, the children researched chariots and learned that the Romans used them for war, hunting and, primarily, for sport. Next, the children designed their own chariot thinking about the dimensions and visual appeal. Then, the children used saws and glue-guns to make the vehicle and decorated their carriages using card and felt-tip pens. Next week, we are looking forward to racing the chariots: it will be interesting to see which one will win!
