Severn Trent Water Workshop October 2022

We took part in a very interesting workshop which was delivered by Sharan from Severn Trent Water.  In groups, we measured the amount of water different fictional families used in one week.  We were shocked by how some families wasted water and we were able to give suggestions on how we can save water around our homes - if you need any tips, please ask your child!


Finally, as a class we joined with the rest of the school in making a promise: to keep hydrated; use a refillable water bottle and recycle our plastic waste to help look after the environment.



This week in year 6 we have had a great time working on our DT project.  Our design brief was to build a bridge that spanned a gap of approximately 40 cm and was strong enough to hold 500g in weight. After some initial research we decided we would build a Truss bridge.  First we had to practice various skills such as: measuring the wood accurately; sawing the wood and gluing it together to create our structure (using a triangulation technique to strengthen it).  We then designed our bridges, particularly thinking about how we would reinforce different parts to make it a strong structure.  Finally we worked in small groups to build our bridges.   Watch this space for the final products...
