Year 4 combine chocolate, jelly and spaghetti for a tower of success!

Much enjoyment was had by all of Year 4, making towers that held a chocolate egg out of jelly babies and spaghetti (uncooked of course) during Science Week, held in March.

The tallest tower was 34cm constructed by the winning team of Lexi, Scarlett, Melissa, Charlotte and Annabel. They all had a great time working together to solve a problem. It definitely tested their patience and their resilience!

Mrs Downes and Miss Green also enjoyed the activity: ‘It was also really interesting to hear the girls’ discussions how they were going to build the tower,’ said Mrs Downes. ‘I think we have a few budding engineers! The girls were highly motivated for the winning prize of Jelly Babies and took them home with great excitement.’
