In DT, year 5 have been learning about different types of bridges ( linked to our topic ‘The River of Life’). The children were tasked with researching , drawing and identifying key facts about bridges before designing their own bridge. Children then used a variety of materials and joining techniques to make a scale model of their design that would withstand the weight of a model car. Great fun was had with some very pleasing results. We are looking forward to testing the bridges (when they are dry) next week.
