Year 5/6 Dam Building

Year 5/6 followed up our research question ‘what makes an effective dam?’ by bringing dam building into the classroom.


After designing our dam and gathering natural materials from the playground we were able to purchase extra materials, such as clay, cotton wool and bin bags, from Mr Tyler and Miss Clark’s shop to use to construct our dams. 


Once we finished building we tested the dams to see whose group would hold in the most water, congratulations to the winning team!
