Today it was time to move on to making our bridges. With a budget limit, we had to select our materials carefully.
We have moved onto our design phase. Today, we split into design teams and created a range of potential bridges to meet the brief we have been set. We evaluated them and shared our favourite designs with others in the class.
Bridges really are amazing creations. We have been learning all about the different types of bridge that can be made. Why not ask us the difference between a beam bridge and a cantilever bridge?
Our DT topic for Spring term is bridges. We will be designing and making our own bridge. We have started by researching famous bridges, thinking about where they are, what size they are and what features they have.
