Year 2's Brilliant Bridges
What are bridges? What purpose do they have?
Year 2 loved going out to investigate bridges, thinking carefully about their structure and what makes them successful.
"It was hard to balance with my partner when we made our bridge but as soon as our friends supported us we were much stronger."
Year 2 spent a lot of time looking at different bridges spotting similarities and differences as well as identifying what they feel made the strong successful bridges. They constructed in different ways using lego - continually improving them as they went along.
After many prototypes, they began to construct their bridges in teams thinking carefully about how to strengthen their structures to achieve their end goal - to be a weight-bearing bridge which is able to transport vehicles.
Year 3 Sewing Superstars
Year 3 have been working hard on their pencil case projects. It was a sea of back stitch and running stitch when I visited the children in class. The focus and attention to detail was fabulous to see. Well done, Year 3! Take a look at their finished products....
