Today, Year 5 & 6 worked together with pupils from Brandon on a range of activities that tested their team working skills.
In the photos shown below, groups had to build the strongest structure using just news paper and Sellotape. Their finished products were then tested to see how much weight they could hold on their own before collapsing.
Well done to everyone who took part. There were lots of varied and interesting designs.
The results were:
The Boss Bridge - Group F - 4.7kg
The Leaning Tower of Newspaper - Group N - 3kg
The Fabulous People - Group H - 1.9kg
The Tower of 'K' Bridge - Group K - 1.6kg
Bridge to Terribithia - Group O - 1kg
The Pillar Bridge - Group D - 700g
The Platinum Gate Bridge - Group M - 500g
Branfield Bridge - Group E - 500g
T and B - Group I - 300g

Terrific Ten - Group B - 200g
BT Bridge - Grouo G - 150g
Lightning Strighk - Group A - 100g
