Bridging the Gap

On the last day of term, the youngest children were set a challenge: make a bridge long enough to span a desk using art straws and a small amount of tape. We had a look at some famous bridges and talked about what made them strong. It was harder than we thought; the straws bent easily and were too short so we had to learn how best to join them. We had a lot of fun and a few collapses along the way.

Sister and one of the older pupils gave us a hand and everyone succeeded in making a bridge before it was time to get ready for Holy Mass. The only challenge then was how to get them home in one piece!
