Spaghetti Structures

Year 6 on June 9th 2021

What great scientific fun Year 5 had on Wednesday afternoon! 

The children had to design and make a structure/tower using spaghetti and marshmallows.

They demonstrated their learning of triangulation when building a structure.

The aim of their tower was to be:-

  • the tallest in the class
  • be free standing
  • and carry a load (weight)

I was amazed by the scientific vocabulary the children were using and also by the fantastic cooperation I witnessed.


Year 5 have really enjoyed the schools Science Week.
