Building Structures

The children of Primary 5/6 are really enjoying their topic ‘setting up a new school’.

Recently an architect visited the classroom and showed us a lot of different images of buildings. We learned to look for beams, columns and trusses in buildings, and afterwards we explored engineering our own 3D objects to demonstrate strengthening. The children used their problem-solving strategies and the knowledge they had learned to construct their models.   Only one or two buildings didn’t stand up, so we think we did really well!
