Fantastic Key Stage 1 Science Event

19 November 2013

Thank you so much to all the Key Stage 1 students and parents that came along to Monday's science event. It was a fantastic turn out and we hope you enjoyed taking up the challenge with your families. There will be more evenings coming up for Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2 later in the year, but in the mean time see what some of the children thought of the event below...

Our challenge was to build a tower to support the plastic ball, Bob, but we had to construct it out of marshmallows and noodles. It was a little hard, and some collapsed, but we managed it. My Dad and I made lots of little rods and stuck them together with marshmallows. Then we built a tall tower, being very careful not to let the tower lean. We had to concentrate but it worked!

I opened the marshmallow because the inside of the marshmallow is the stickiest bit. I stuck so many noodles together because 1 noodle is fragile and will break but so many noodles do not break. We made triangle shapes like the Eiffel Tower and made a pyramid. It worked! It was very hard because the noodles kept falling down, and we had to hold them to balance them. It was really fun because I got to work with my friends and my family. My tower was really high and I felt really happy! I even got to eat 1 tasty marshmallow at the end!
