Pupils got se first hand a fire engine and a rapid response police car and to visit the Haynes Motor Museum at Sparkford, Somerset which included a ride in a vintage car.

Ofek Voisey aged nine said: “I learned how a motor works and how to say the word chassis.”

Felicity Cutforth aged nine added: “It was fun when we tested our models. Mine did a 360 spin and then went off in another direction.”

Head teacher Nigel Tancock said: “The ‘Cars’ project has proved very popular and exemplifies Woodbury’s approach to providing learning experiences that not only engage the children’s interest but also helps stimulate their desire to learn.”
