Building Bridges

We're joining up our ideas about many different things...

This term we have started to learn about different types of bridges and how they are constructed. We've been exploring beams, trusses and arches, even building some simple prototypes of different techniques.

We've been making links in Maths, too: short division & long division last week, before taking a trip into B.I.D.M.A.S., this week. We'll be going on to look at angles and shapes.

In our English work we've been thinking about some of the issues raised by the story of The Lorax. The children have been hard at work writing and giving persuasive speeches in support of either of the main characters. Next week we'll be changing our text and setting course for something a little more chilling...
