This week we are having a focus on Design Technology in our half term topic linked to Italy.
As Italy has so many beautiful bridges have a look at some in the powerpoint below:-
I hope you chose one that you liked.
This week we would like you to have a go at making a bridge yourself! Design it first using the PDF below. Have a good think about materials you may want to use to construct it! You can use lots of different resources and try out different ideas for example:
- Building bricks
- Lego or Duplo
- Junk modelling (boxes, tubes etc)
I’m sure you will have lots of your own ideas! Why not get someone else in your family to join in with the project! You could give your bridge a name!
We would love to see your bridge so send your pictures in to the class email page at
and we look forward to seeing some examples!
Have a look at some other bridges from around the world –
