Welcome everyone!

Welcome back to school!

We started the term with a newspaper challenge - building pylons using paper spills. First we had to make the spills which is not as easy at it looks, though everyone got better at this quite quickly. Then we had to think about the structure and shape of pylons. You can see the skills involved in this activity as labels at the bottom of the post. You can look at the comments below to see what everyone thought about the challenge. We will all be writing a quality blog comments regularly - please join in! If you would like to know more about how to write a quality blog comment have a look at the video in the sidebar. 


Everyone learned a lot about stable bases and strong shapes, how important joins are, and got used to working in groups again. Lots more structural challenges coming up!

  6. Hi everyone, Now we are in Class 5. It is good to be back. We have made pylons but ours fell down because it wasn't stable. If we did it next time we would use the tape carefully to make good joins. Paige and Scott.

  16. I liked making the pylons because I was good at making the spills neat and tight. I liked building the model, we had some good ideas. Although it didn't work at the start we kept trying and it was over 1m tall, it did stand up but when we put the rope on it fell over.
    Can we do it again because we could do it even better next time?
