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.
