Express event

What a brilliant way to end a fantastic term. Thank you to those parents who helped to make our express event successful!

The children and parents had to try and make a bridge using only newspaper and sellotape. The bridge had to hold the weight of 500 grams. All of the parents and children had the opportunity to hold and feel how heavy the weight was, most of the children were surprised and nervous about how they they could make a bridge strong enough to hold the weight.

After 30 minutes of competition between parents and children, it was time to test the bridges….. To everyone’s surprise all of the bridges held the weight!

Well done to all Maple class parents and careers and especially the children. We look forward to seeing you at our next express event!
