Another Challenge for Us…

This afternoon we had another technological and engineering challenge and worked with a partner to see if we could get our mini Humpty Dumptys safely over the wall!

We found out the fancy names for the equipment we used; see if your child can tell you what a lever and fulcrum are!

We discovered that by moving the fulcrum into different positions along the lever, Humpty could either go flying forwards or backwards and he sometimes even hit the ceiling! We also discovered that sometimes you have to keep on trying as things don’t always work first time… our next challenge will be to protect Humpty if he wobbles off a wall again so if you have anything at home that would help protect an egg then send it to school tomorrow!

    Abby told me she loved her day at school today, working out how to get humpty over the wall. She came home and set about drawing. She has produced a picture of how she would get him over the wall!! Very impressive, I’ll send it in tomorrow!
