As part of our learning during ‘Where is Matt?’ Week, we had the amazing opportunity to work together with other children from across the school. We took up the challenge of working in groups to try to build the tallest free-standing tower that could hold the weight of an egg (tennis ball – as we didn’t want any accidents!).

We were only able to use a newspaper, 2 large sheets of newspaper and a roll of masking tape. We had to work collaboratively and make sure that everyone in our group had a job and had their ideas heard.

Look at what we were able to achieve!
