Learning and Working Together “The quality of education provided by this school is outstanding” January 2014 ETI


Spaghetti Tower Challenge

Year 7H have been focusing on Bridges as their WAU topic. We have visited local bridges in the area and looked at all types of different structures from around the world. The pupils have discovered that triangular shapes are often found within strong structures.  The challenge in this activity was to plan in groups and build a tower with only dry spaghetti and jelly babies as the construction materials. The pupils worked really well together and produced a variety of different structures.
