Design and Technology

During Summer term one, 5SB have been busy getting stuck into their new topic in DT. They have been busy exploring and experimenting structures of bridges and why and how these are made.

This topic develops children’s understanding of secure structures and introduces them to measuring, sawing and joining wood accurately. After learning about different types of bridges and also exploring how the strength of structures can be affected by the shapes used. Children create their own wooden bridge and test its durability.
