Year 3 DTToday in DT year 3 have been investigating shelters.

We experimented how we could strengthen a piece of A4 paper.

We had to keep the A4 paper the same size and make sure that it was at the top of our shelter.

We then had a test to see how many weights our strengthened paper could hold.

    This is very interesting work year 3. I’m interested in how you strengthened your shelters. It looks like the winning structure used cylinders. Could somebody come to my office and explain what you have found out?
