Class 1 Bridge Building

Lesson: Design and technology

Class: Year 1 Year: 2017 - 2018

Class 1 have been reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff.  When the goats wrote to us to ask if we could design and build them a new bridge we said yes! We looked at how bridges were built and what were the strongest shapes we could make paper into.

We designed our own bridges in teams and made them. Finally we invited the goats (cunningly disguised as other animals so the troll didn't get them) into class to test how strong and stable they were.  Not all the bridges held the weight of the animals and some of them were very wobbly but we enjoyed testing them.
