Year 2 are engineers: building bridges

Year 2 learnt about different bridges located in Leeds and Kolkata as part of their topic lessons. They considered how the bridges were designed to be free standing and stable, experimenting with straws and sellotape to create prototypes. Then they planned and built their own bridges in groups, measuring, sawing and using glue guns to join pieces of wood. They added corner supports to further strengthen their bridges.
