KS2 Design and Technology – A Taste for Bridges

How one teacher is bringing design and technology to life An inspirational example of how one teacher is bringing a D&T topic to life. It’s Brunel Week at Stoke Bishop Primary School in Bristol and Year 5/6 class teacher Irene Harrison seizes the opportunity to tackle ‘Bridges’. She takes her pupils on a guided visit to the nearby Clifton Suspension Bridge, then sets them to work on an on-line set of interactive bridge-building tasks (access to this resource is available free via the Teachers’ TV website) and, helped by parent governor and bridge engineer Nigel Fletcher, they embark on an unusual challenge: to design and build a model bridge entirely out of food.
