Building Bridges with Jake
This morning I was invited into the school with Jake and his class friends to create a bridge.
Yesterday Jake has made a design on the computer that we would then recreate today.
He had chosen to do the Northern Spire Bridge which opened at the end of August last year in Sunderland.
We drove past this in the October after visiting the Sunderland Illuminations, and today, we had the chance to recreate this.
We used circular ended wood for the legs, chopped to equal sizes. Jake was a pro at this as he’s used the saw a few times in the garden at home to saw wood for the log burner in our garden.
To the centre of the bridge we used 2 pieces of wood, glued together repeating for both peaks.
Then to recreate the wire/string look we used thinner pieces of wood and glued into shape. This took us just 1 hour and both very pleased with the results.
I do believe now that he has got to create a road for it. Can’t wait to see how this turns out!
