Design and Technology


Year 2 are looking at 'Structures'.  To start with, they looked at Bridges and how they come in all different shapes and sizes.  They looked at the very first bridges and the materials used to build them and more modern day bridges.  


The children then looked at how they could strengthen bridges and looked at how pillars are made to reinforce the bridge.  They all completed an investigation to see which would be the strongest.

Looking at how to build a Truss which are used to strengthen bridges.

Investigating the strength of beams using weights. Miss Dewhurst, who is our D&T Subject Leader came to visit us and asked the children lots of questions.

These are some photos of the 3 Bridges that cross the Firth of Forth in Scotland.
