Can You Make a Bridge?

On Monday afternoon, Miss Barber set the Reception children a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) challenge.  I asked the children if they could make a bridge to help The Three Billy Goats Gruff cross the river.

To begin the challenge we all looked at lots of different pictures of bridges and then the children were presented with a selection of building materials…tape, card, paper, wooden sticks, straws, cardboard tubes, string, and ribbon.

The children really enjoyed the activity; it really made the children think about what a bridge is and what it has to look like.
