Year 4 Classroom or Construction Site?

As part of their topic ‘Go with the Flow’, Year 4 have been learning about famous bridges and engineers. They have also been set a challenge to design their own bridge that can successfully allow a toy car to cross the classroom river (our homework tray). The pupils have thought hard about their material choices and designs to ensure they are sturdy enough and waterproof. Today they started to construct their bridges, carefully selecting their materials and the best ways to join the parts of their bridges together.
