Make a bridge!
Over the last half term, year 3 have been solving a DT problem! We received a letter from a local resident asking for our help. As a year group we came up with the ideas to build a bridge to help Joe get across a river. Brilliantly, the children have investigated famous bridges and types of bridges and we now believe are experts in this field!
The last part of this investigation is to try and make a model bridge. We have found out about beam bridges predominately, however, children can create any bridge they can.
Over the half term break, we would like you to spend some time creating a bridge out of any material you can get your hands on! We tried spaghetti bridges in class (which worked quite well), but you are welcome to try any material- which one did you find worked best? Your bridge needs to be strong and sturdy!
Your bridge can be any size and shape- this is your bridge so be as creative as you can!
If you have any questions please ask Mr Gill or Mrs Morris.
