Paper Straws and Marshmellows

Posted: 26th January 2023

children building using straws and marshmallows

This week in RPS, Year 4 discussed Article 15 which focuses upon setting up or joining groups and the idea that children can join or set up groups or organisations and meet with others. The children were then set the challenge of building the tallest tower possible using just paper straws and marshmallows.  They looked at the importance of decision making and how decisions are often made through various picture scenarios and finally took on the challenge of working collaboratively in small groups and making informed decisions. They managed to create some amazing towers and had great fun!! Well done Year 4!
