User Rating:  / 1

The children in year 6 have been putting their history and DT knowledge to the test this week by designing World War II Anderson shelters. They were given the following criteria:

  • make the structure freestanding
  • ensure it can withstand weight/ pressure from above
  • ensure the structures have enough room to house a family of four (to scale)
  • ensure air can circulate the inside of the shelter

The pupils have been given a range of tools and resources to create their shelters and construction will commence on Monday 23rd April. We will be undertaking rigorous ‘testing’ of the shelters (dropping heavy objects on them) during the following session.
