On our first morning as a new Year 5 team, members of 5W and 5M came together to try to build the strongest bridge possible…using only cardboard!
We had a great time and found out a lot about how folding can strengthen a material. We also practised our maths skills whilst adding and subtracting weights. Recording our results in tables meant that we could analyse our results and find out which structure was the strongest.
We made it! We’re having a great time and we’ve done so many amazing things. We’ve fed the pigs, fed the cows, fed the chickens, collected eggs, mucked out the geese pen, witnessed the birth of two lambs, did some gardening, landscaping for new beehives and cleaned up horse poop!
We’ve also learnt how to clean up after ourselves so when we get back home, we’ll be more than happy to show you our housekeeping skills!
