P1-7 all worked collaboratively in mixed groups today to create a roller coaster.

The children were given the following design brief that their roller coaster had to be:

  • at least 30cm tall in one point (ruler)
  • The bingo ball rolls down from the top to the bottom without falling off or without someone supporting it

The children all created some brilliant roller coasters, it is interesting to see how the children interpret the design brief and how different they can all be. The children were problem solving along the way and coming up with strategies to challenges. They were also able to justify their solutions.

This afternoon, the staff will evaluate the activity and make links using our schools ‘Super 6 Skills.’
