Welcome to the St Mary's family!

Spring term 2

Welcome to Maple Class!

Week Beginning Monday 13th March 2023

This week in Maple class we enjoyed learning about the theme of 'Connections' during Science Week. 

We linked the week to our materials science work.  We discussed how strong certain shapes would be, as we predicted which tower would be the strongest for out ‘Paper Towers’ investigation.

We made card towers with different base shapes and then tested their strength by placing books on top.  One tower was still holding 27 books without collapsing!  It was very exciting! 

We wonder if you can guess which tower was the strongest?  Was it the circular base, the triangular base or the square base?

Look out for the photographs and our findings next week!
