Year 5 & Year 6

Problem Solving at Trent College!

On Wednesday 22nd February, Levon, Matthew, Alicja, Amelia, Erin, Patrick, Tom and Tess represented our school by taking part in a problem solving afternoon at Trent College. The problem was simple: Build a bridge over a gap using materials provided – or was it?! Every item came with a price – plastic cups were a whopping £1000! The idea was that there would be two winners, one for the strongest bridge and one for the most cost effective. Although we didn’t take the winning prize, our bridges collaboratively held 9kg and Mrs Jones even sat on one and it remained undamaged. We had lots of fun and we even got to wear the ‘groovy glasses’ as we danced the most to the music: Doesn’t Erin look great!
