Year 2 Maple class trip to Bury Transport Museum

We had a wonderful day today! 

We arrived at Bury Transport Museum and we met our guide, Keith. He showed us around the museum floor and we saw all sorts of vehicles from the past. We discussed how transport had changed, particularly how wheels had been modified over the years from steel to rubber tyres. We saw how some transport was pulled by horses and how this changed with engines. 

We then swapped groups with Elm class and it was our turn for Design Technology. 

We discussed how vehicles move and then tested how to get our wheels to turn with the equipment. The children all managed to build a moving vehicle with axles and wheels and even tested how they moved down a ramp. 

We had our lunch and then we were free to explore the museum. There was so much to see!

Thank you Bury Transport Museum. We had a fantastic day!
