    Building bridges in Science

    18 May 2023 (by admin)

    KS1 took up the challenge of constructing a bridge strong enough to support the weight of a toy car - there were a few conditions involved though...

    The children could only use 8 sheets of A4 paper and sticky tape, they were not allowed to attach the bridge to the table or chairs in anyway and there had to be a gap of 40cm. The children took part in this challenge as part of their Science unit learning about Materials and had been looking at where paper comes from and how it is made. There was a huge buzz of excitement in the classroom, amazing team work and interesting engineering ideas. When the time was up each team's bridge was tested and as you can see in the photos the winning team were very pleased with their achievement!
