The afternoon was entitled ‘The Bridge Challenge’ enabled children to work in family and house teams with parents, carers and other family invited to support and join in the challenge. The only thing people needed to bring was newspaper and sellotape!
The afternoon was BONKERS and it did prove that newspaper and sellotape can make some seriously strong structures! One bridge was able to support the weight of 3 parents in one go! Slightly underestimated the strength of the paper having decided that we should use bricks to test the bridges... even Grandparents were used to test the structures!
We will talk about the results in the assembly tomorrow morning with Key Stage 2 and on Monday with Key Stage 1. The aim is to discuss the science of what we witnessed this afternoon.
Thank you to those of you who were involved. I think we have quite a few competitive parents here : )
Now... clearing up and needing a rest!
