We are Engineers DT Day
What a fabulous day we had on Thursday 22nd September, a whole day of DT.
First, we recalled what an engineer is - it was great as we really thought how this linked to our learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We thought about making a strong and stable structure by making human bridges. We then learnt about the parts of a bridge before designing a one of our own. The day became extremely exciting when we started to build towers with Lego, attach chains and use our chosen materials for the deck. At the end of the day, we tested our bridges and every single one was successful. What an achievement! Not only were we super engineers but we showed values of perseverance, courage and determination working superbly in our teams.
We finished the day with a discussion about how we could improve our designs.
At the end of the day, we were so proud to share our bridges with our parents and invited them to see our amazing learning.
