As part of our topic on the Industrial Revolution and the Victorians, 6B have been exploring the life and works of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We wrote biographies of him including finding out all about his ships, railways, tunnels and bridges. Inspired by his design for the Clifton Suspension Bridge, we then had a go at making our own suspension bridges. However, our building materials were rather different to his (newspaper, string and cellotape) and we had to use tables to recreate the Avon Gorge. We had a lot of fun and made some great bridges all of which passed the pencil case test. One even held the weight of Jasper for a good 5 minutes before Miss Brock said he had to get off. Finally, after testing our bridges, we had great fun destroying them then spent the next 5 minutes clearing up the wreckage of our designs. A great Friday afternoon!!
