Structures in Year 4
Year 4 have started the week with our DT unit all about structures. We began by looking at a range of pavilions and discussed their purpose, including exploring the Milan expo! We then used tooth picks and sweets to explore temporary frame structure. We were tasked with making a frame structure which was both strong and stable. Through our exploration we learnt that triangles were very strong shapes and helped to make a stable structure. We also learnt that the taller the structure the more unstable it can become! Having learnt these valuable lessons we moved onto designing our own pavilions for a class expo all about our new topic peculiar plants.
