Design and Technology
In Design and Technology, we started by researching and looking at various bridges from around the world thinking about the structure and aesthetic features. After this, we tested materials for strength, flexibility and water-resistance to be able to select our materials for our own bridge designs.
After making and testing a prototype, we created our final bridges and tested these to see if they could hold 1kg of weight. Year 5 did such a fantastic job that some bridges were even able to hold 3kg!
