Building Bridges

As part of their learning about bridges and towers in Science this term, Year 4 had the challenge of creating a bridge using only spaghetti and marshmallows.

They created different shapes first and carried out comparative tests to find out which one would keep its shape best. They looked at the photo of a Truss bridge to support their planning and designs and investigated why triangles were used. They used their knowledge of triangles as a strong structure to make their own beam bridge in teams.

Lots of fun was had by all!
