Topic Weekly Activity

1) In our topic lessons, we began to learn about 'bridges'. In one of the attachments below, you will find a PowerPoint presentation about 'Bridges Around the World'. It would be fantastic if you could research facts about bridges in our local area or a famous bridge in the United Kingdom. You can share what you have learnt on Class Dojo. 

2) Would you like to become a builder or an engineer? Well, we have a challenge for you! Can you build a bridge strong enough to carry a toy car? Use the PDF 'Build a Bridge' document to help you with the planning and designing of your bridge. We can't wait to see what you have made!

3) We also have some topic-related tasks in the 'To Do List' on Purple Mash.
