This week in Year 5, the children have been focusing on creating a structure in DT. We explored and investigated arch and beam bridges. We developed our understanding of structures by investigating how different shapes affect the strength. Also we created spaghetti truss bridges, by learning how different shapes can improve the strength of a structure.
Olivia and Izzy said, “It is was very fun but challenging trying to problem solve to create a strong beam to hold the weights without our bridge collapsing.”
