Spring 2 – Week 4

Stars of the Week: Sapphire and Yonatan

Class 5 have had assessments this week and persevered to do their best. Well done Class 5!

In DT, Class 5 were given a task to make a structure that would hold a platform 10cm from the table. However, all they could use was paper and masking tape! All of the children did a fantastic job as teams and managed to make structures that would hold the platform and weights on top of it! One group managed to hold 12kg on top of their structure! As a class, we realised that you need to make sure you have a wide base, a low centre of gravity and lots of triangles (as that is the strongest shape).
