Building Bridges

Earlier in the term, Year 4 visited the imagined island of 'Amarylis' to learn all about its’ unique culture. After a lengthy debate, it was decided that a bridge should be built linking the island to the mainland. Once this decision was made it raised a whole new question: What would this new bridge look like? The students researched existing famous bridges for inspiration; tested the strength of different designs in science and finally designed their own bridges. Over the last week these designs have been brought to life in the Design + Technology workshop, in the process developing our cutting, joining and drilling skills.
