Bridge building Challenge - Leonardo Da Vinci style!

So today we set the F2 children a bridge building challenge.

Can you build a bridge out of 15 pieces of wood that will hold itself up and will let you walk over it?

With thanks to the following video, which you can see the children looking very carefully at, we were able to replicate a bridge designed by the famous Leonardo Da Vinci. Click here to watch the Youtube video that started it all off!

We took photos to capture the different stages of the engineering project. click here to see some of the pictures showing the bridge growing.

Finally we had to test it out! Some of the older children came in and wanted to have a go too. Mrs Lindley even tested it but stopped half way through when she heard a big crack!
