Bridge building

In this lesson, we will learn how to apply the life skills of creative thinking and fluency of ideas to solve the problem of building bridges and towers. We will include the planning and completion of a physical challenge based on the outcome of the building work. Please note this lesson will require some physical exercise and additional equipment, beyond a pen, pencil or paper, to fully participate. Parents and carers are responsible for ensuring that children follow the correct safety advice provided at the start of this lesson and the instructions the teacher gives during the lesson. Parents and carers are responsible for supervising activities where required and for seeking medical advice in advance if your child has a medical condition that may prevent them taking part in physical activity.
