Senior Infants have been learning all about bridges. We looked at pictures of some well known bridges and noticed their features.

  • The Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Sydney Harbour Bridge.
  • Thomand Bridge.
  • Boal’s Bridge, Limerick.

Next, we made some bridges using paper and books. We discovered that you can make a bridge stronger by putting an arch under it. We can also make a bridge stronger by pushing the beams closer together.

We designed our own bridges.

We went for a walk and we found two bridges. We noticed their features. One bridge has an arch. We drew a picture of this bridge. We walked under another bridge. This bridge has big beams of concrete under it to support it.
