As part of our DT topic we have been finding out about different types of bridges. We have also been learning about lots of bridges that link Newcastle and Gateshead.

We set our parents and carers a challenge to build a bridge that was strong enough to carry a 100g weight for 10 seconds. The real challenge was that we could only use 3 newspapers and sticky tape. Each team of children and adults had a team name and we had 30 minutes to construct our bridges. There was lots of team effort and it was great fun. There was 100% success rate because all of the bridges were strong enough to hold the 100g weight for 10 seconds. Well done everyone!
