Today in PSHE we explored collaborative working. The children sorted themselves into groups through a mimicking game and then were faced with a challenge. They had to make the tallest tower possible using only 6 sheets of paper and a roll of sellotape!

Class 5 have been working on a property development project for the past 2 weeks in preparation for an Enterprise Day where they would be working closely with Charlotte Molyneux from Education Business Partnership South West and Martin Cavanna from Cavanna Homes.
This Wednesday the enterprise day took place. The children worked collaboratively to solve many challenges and meet tight deadlines. The day was a great success and all of the children had a valuable learning experience. We would like to thank Charlotte and Martin for the day and also Gillian Gray and Mr Jeffs (both STEM ambassadors) who joined the judging panel.
