Building Bridges

Have you ever stared in awe at a bridge and wondered how that simple structure can support the weight it does without falling down or collapsing under the load it has to bear?  This term, in Science, Topic and D & T, Year five have looked at the design and build of bridges, how they work and have even built their own based on the science and engineering skills they have learnt about on the way. So next time you are out and about and pass under or over a bridge you can ask your child about the type of bridge it is and how the structural design keeps it from collapsing.
