On the first day of our new year 5, the children were set a challenge of making a bridge using only:
8 pieces of A4 paper
3 pieces of A3 paper
5 pieces of card
and a large piece of sugar paper.
Working in teams they had to design and build a bridge that would hold 5 school books for 2 minutes. Both year 5 classes took this challenge head on and made some amazing bridges, all holding the books and lasting the full 2 minutes.
Both classes have settled in beautifully, forming lasting friendship's and beginning to think about their future ahead.
