Year 6 kicked off Spring Term 1 with an exciting ‘Bridges’ project.
For this, they completed a research project on Isambard Kingdom Brunel, creating a non-chronological report. Then, they practised their sketching skills, creating images of different types of bridges. Finally, they were able to design and make their own bridge using art straws and other resources. The class had a fantastic time doing this and most groups worked excellently as teams. The winning bridge held a total weight of 130 grams before collapsing! Great fun had by everyone involved!
