Year 6 are looking at bridges this term. We looked at different types of bridge and discussed what makes a bridge strong. Their task was to make strongest bridge out of newspaper in groups, these were then tested by weights.The winning bridge was constructed out of triangles which had been inspired by Sydney Harbour bridge. This links to our English book of ‘Journey’ which has been the focus for our writing and follows the story of a girl’s adventure into another world with her red pen.
We will now plan and design a bridge to make out of wood.
