P1-7 learn about Construction

This morning, the P1-7 English class were learning about shapes in construction. The pupils were paired up and set the challenge of building the tallest, strongest structure they could using spaghetti and marshmallows. We then tested the strength of their structures by placing weights on the top of their tower until it collapsed. Pupils learned about the strongest shape and will use what they have learned to build strong bridges in another session.
