Here in Year 2, we love to be helpful and this year, Santa needed our help! His sleigh had become very old and worn out so he asked us to design a new one for him!
We thought about the purpose of Santa's sleigh - to help Santa deliver the presents safely and comfortably - and then we thought about how we could do that. Some ideas we had were to include a hot chocolate and cookie dispenser - YUMMY! - and a picture of Mrs Claus to make Santa smile :-)
We had to think carefully about how to make our sleigh move and we investigated the best axle and mechanism to power our sleigh. We had to measure carefully and then use precision cutting skills as well as a hand saw and a cold glue gun. Here are some photos. We had so much fun!
