Shapes and Pyramids

On Thursday, we started the day by learning about the names and properties of different triangles and quadrilaterals. We then sorted them into Carroll and Venn diagrams using a range of different criteria.

In the afternoon, we had a go at a team-building challenge. We were given a packet of spaghetti and marshmellows. Our challenge was to successfully build a square-based pyramid which had a strong enough structure that it would stay standing. We had to work together as a team and communicate our ideas fairly in order to achieve the task within the given time limit. Many of us made several attempts on our structures, each time finding ways to improve our designs so that the pyramid wouldn't collapse. In the end, we were all successful with our pyramids, and really enjoyed having the opportunity to work with different people!
