P6 Brilliant Bridges!

Today P6 had a visitor for our topic. Our new topic is Civil Engineering and our visitor today was Miss Williamson’s sister who is a Civil engineer. She explained the job of a civil engineer, told us about her job in Grangemouth, and all about the refinery. She also let us try on her real PPE! She also told us about her new job working with bridges and set us a challenge to create a bridge to hold 4 Mars Bars. We learnt that cylinders and triangles were strong shapes so used this when building out bridges. The winning team had 3 strong cylinders and even held a dictionary! We are excited to begin our topic and find our more about engineering.
