We are getting to know this product; recycled plastic moulded into  posts and planks.

Terminology. Posts; the upright legs, tall on one side to support a hand rail, level with decking on the other so the pupils can pond dip. Bearers; the cross pieces attached to the legs. Stringers; the planks that run the length of the bridge. Decking; the planks that form the walkway.  

Lots of thinking today to make sure we created an accurate framework.

Working in a pond = mud. Working in a pond in the rain = very muddy...
