Second and Fifth class decided to join together to celebrate Engineers Week on Wednesday and had lots of fun completing a STEM challenge. We worked together in small groups to try to build a structure that was strong and tall. We had to build using either a square or rectangular shape because we wanted to see if this would make any difference to how strong and tall our structures would be. Teamwork was also very important! We used plasticine and and small match sticks to create our structures.

Check out some of our photographs below to see us in action!


We worked really well in our teams, making sure that everyone had a chance to contribute. We found that it was important to mould the plasticine carefully as this helped in making our structures strong.


Paddy arrived as our guest judge and scored the structures out of a possible 30 points – 10 points for strength, 10 points for height and 10 points for teamwork. We were so proud when all teams taking part received 10 points for teamwork! A huge well done to all the pupils for their hard work and congratulations to the winning team who won a homework pass for the night! Check out our finished structures below:
