In are co-operative groups this week we used our canal boat designs to build a 3D model of our boats and presented the design to the class. We discovered that some of the designs were not waterproof so the boats would sink! We also carried out research on how a canal lock works and how they help the boats to move up and down the canals.
We are also nearly finished our class novel “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
