Today the children explored how an axle works using cardboard templates, wheels and a range of materials for axles. They discovered that:
1. The wheel needed to be attached tightly to the axle and the axle free to turn.
2. The axle could be fixed and the wheels turn on the axle.
See the gallery for some pictures of the children carrying out this investigation.
