For the topic section of learning this week, we are going to do a spot of
engineering!
In the story of the light house keepers lunch, Mrs Gingling sends Mr Gringling
his lunch across a wire. We would like you to have a go at inventing a
contraption which will carry a sandwich across the wire (some string). Is a wire
the best method? Maybe you could try different ways of getting the food
across.
You will need to think about how big your sandwich carrier will need to be to
fit the food in, what to make it out of that will be strong enough, and how to
make it move across the string by itself (will one side need to be higher?) You
could even have a go at making the little cottage and the lighthouse out of junk
materials too if you would like. Have a look at the pictures bellow to get some
inspiration. We can not wait to see what you come up with!
