Whilst the majority of Eagles and a few Owls were at Newlands tag rugby, Eagle Owls took part in a DT day. The first session of the morning was spent in the hall making shapes to see which was the strongest. We found out that triangles are the strongest, and Ivy's tetrahedron was very strong indeed.
We used what we had found out to build spaghetti towers on the playground. Mrs Holt. Mrs Taverner and Mrs Fowler were very impressed with the level of teamwork and ingenuity.
In the afternoon we designed and made parachutes to drop eggs safely. The two groups who were successful had similar designs - the egg was entirely encased in a cube. The team with a tray design's egg made the most spectacular splat!
