Marshmallow Challenge - Build a Tower, Build a Team!
Fifth class have been working on their problem solving skills and have enjoyed working collaboratively. Teams were given the task to build the tallest free standing structure in eighteen minutes given a limited amount of materials. This led to some interesting discussions. We feel we have gelled well as a class. We would especially like to welcome our three new students, Sophie Mulcahy, Tara Brandenburg and Evie Gunter.
