Bridge Building Day

Year 5 were very lucky to have a special guest visit for the day, to help with their bridge building project. Thank you Mr. Cheyney, we had the best day! Make sure you scroll down to see everything that we did.

Tested until destruction…
We gradually added weights to each bridge until it collapsed! All the bridges carried at least 1000g, and the winning bridge supported 1900g! It was very tense! There were prizes for the top team in each category. 


Ready to Test!

Our bridges were tested on a specially built structure with a 45cm gap. The bridges also had to accommodate the lorry with an additional 500g weight. 

Our Champion Teams!
Our champion teams with their completed bridges. Each team’s bridge fulfilled the specification criteria. What a result!
