Bridge Building with Year 3

Over the last 2 weeks, year 3 have been participating in a D&T project of building bridges! Last week, we researched different kinds of bridges and designed a bridge which could cross a small body of water. This week, we have made these bridges from lolly sticks, spaghetti, straws, tape and glue and tested them using a toy car. Whilst some bridges weren’t as successful as others, all children understood how to add strength to their bridges when we evaluated how to improve them for next time.
