Age: 10-11

Four boys from the 10s 11s class were in 'The Pines' creating what looked like an imaginary car on the ground. They had built a rectangular frame using long straight sticks and had dug a hole in the earth. When being observed they were placing two plastic chair backs side-by-side into the hole that they had dug. They were taking it in turns to make sure that it had been built correctly and that the chairs were sitting properly. As the researcher left, they were beginning to sit in the chairs and pretend they were racing cars.
