Design and Technology – 13th March 2023

Our DT learning cafe was a super-sawing success!!! 

Mr Cresswell gave us the (nearly) impossible task of making a bridge out of marshmallows and spaghetti! We had to make it strong enough for the 3 Billy goats to cross (using 100g, 1kg and 2kg weights as the goats!!) 

Whilst some of the parents and children managed to make a bridge strong enough, it became apparent that we needed stronger materials for the bridge and a better glue than marshmallows!!  

We had to think about the ‘R’ element of our CARES curriculum as we had to draw on our resilience to help us get through the difficulties we had faced and continue designing and planing until we were successful. 

We were then given lots of different types of wood, hot glue guns and nails to try and design and make a stronger bridge. 

Our parents and children were very creative and made some wonderful bridges!! 

We hope you enjoyed our complimentary hot drinks and biscuits. We were also lucky enough to have some delicious cake available for a small donation towards Macmillian cancer support. Thank you to everyone who donated. Emily and Lindsey were very grateful for your support. 

Well done everyone, fantastic work!!
