Year 1 DT – Just paper?

Wow, What a lesson! Today, Year One we’re investigating how shaping materials can impact how stable a structure can be. We experimented with lots of different ideas to see how many blocks 1 sheet of paper can hold!

We started thinking about how we cod reinforce our structures to make them even stronger! How many cubes could 2 or 3 pieces of paper hold?

Impressive bridges were made on Zoom too. Bridges that could hold lots of toys and bridges that were stable enough to carry a jar of marmite.

Our Word of the Week was function. The function of our bridge was to carry bricks and to be strong enough to hold a pencil sharpener.
