Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Year 1 Engineering Visitor

Year 1 were very lucky to have a visit from James this afternoon, who is an engineer. This enhanced the learning we have completed previously this week in Science week, as we have all had a go at designing, building, making and testing things.

James then showed us the different types of bridges that have been built, we looked at photographs and designs of them. James had designed and built a beam bridge and a suspension bridge out of cardboard, wood and string. We then tested the bridges with weights. Can you remember which bridge was the strongest and why?

The children learnt so much and were asking lots of inquisitive questions about bridges and how they are made.

A huge thank you to James for his time and effort this afternoon.
