Our challenge was to build the strongest bridge possible using only 20 sheets of paper and some sellotape. We came up with some fabulous designs and the winning team's bridge managed to support 3.75kg!
As part of our Local Heroes theme this half term, we've been learning about William Armstrong, the man behind Newcastle's famous Swing Bridge. We decided to do some investigating into bridges ourselves to see how the design structure of a bridge affects how much weight it can carry.
We have been looking at the work of Antony Gormley in our art lessons and have sculpted our own Angels of the North.
