Paper Construction

As part of Engineer’s Week, we looked at how paper can be used for construction. We discovered how the shape of paper changes how much weight it can support. We experimented with folding and rolling paper to make it stronger. We designed and built free-standing metre-tall structures, simple bridges and structures to support the weight of our maths books. We had many failures before we discovered a method which worked. We worked in small groups and discovered the importance of teamwork!

Writing Recipes

We have started working on procedural writing. This week we wrote recipes for homework. Some children even brought in their finished results! A huge thank to all the children and parents who baked for us!
