As part of our Science week, Y6 were joined by a representative from Kier Construction and Engineering. The children were set a task of designing and building a bridge using spaghetti and marshmallows. They had to consider a range of structures and design a bridge that would be strong, secure and stable. The children worked in teams to design structures which would be sturdy enough to withstand the weight of coins and cubes. The afternoon linked closely with our current Design and Technology topic of Structures. There is definitely some future engineers and architects in Y6!
