Sustainable LearningSustainable Learning has developed a free resource for years 5 & 6 called: The Future of Transport.

Calling all budding engineers! Inspire your children to use their design skills and create a brand-new alternative to modern transport…” (Sustainable Learning)

It declares that it is an hour-long lesson but it is actually three lessons so I guess the duration could vary depending how long you allowed children for each section. This is a mini-project which could be fitted into any project covering transport.

“A series of three lessons designed for budding engineers; following on from the En-tyre-ly Barking Mission related to our Sustainable Shaun game! Children are challenged by Shaun and the flock, to design an imaginative alternative to modern day transport and the pollution it causes. Designed for Upper Key Stage 2, the lessons allow the children’s imaginations to go wild whilst encouraging them to work collaboratively to find a solution to Shaun’s mission.” (Sustainable Learning)

All of the resources needed are available for free download from the Sustainable Learning site, including a letter from Shaun the Sheep encouraging children to design something wonderful.

Working with your classmates, you’ll need to design a new method of transport. Who knows- in years to come, we might be travelling to school and work along vacuum tubes, on underwater planes, or even bicycles in the sky! It’s up to you! How imaginative can you be?” (Sustainable Learning)
