Measuring with a ruler and newspaper towers

Today we have been perfecting how to measure with a ruler. The children had an order from the Fairytale Castle for items such as a necklace for the queen, sword for the knight and a teddy bear for the princess. They had to draw these items making sure that they drew them to the exact measurement required.

The whole school was given a challenge today. Each class had to try and build the highest tower using three newspapers. The children in year 2 tried out their ideas in groups before we set to work creating our class tower.

The children had brilliant ideas and our tower looked like it was going to be fabulous. However, I think we got a little over ambitious and sadly our tower refused to stand up on its own!!!
