Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Best Bridge Contest

This week the children were set the problem of making a bridge that spanned a 25cm gap using only 5 sheets of paper and sticky tape. The children worked in small groups of no more than 4. Some of the groups had more success than others. The groups who had the most success were the groups who carefully folded their paper into different shapes.

The winning bridge was made by Liberty, Isla and Maisie. It held a whopping 301g which was over 100g more than last year’s winning group.
