Our class entered the K'Nex Challenge. It was a very exciting morning! The children's task was to construct a swing bridge. The bridge is supported by a central structure that allows the bridge to pivot around 90 degrees. In its closed position, the bridge carries a road or railway over a river or canal. When boats need to pass, the bridge rotates around 90 degrees so they can sail past on the waterway. The bridge then returns to its original position. This was quite a challenge because of the pivotal arrangement needed for the bridge to 'swing' around 90 degrees. The children chose their own partners based on their collaboration and revision skills. The winners of The Challenge were Harry and Sophie, who will go onto the final at Coventry University this summer. In second place were Finlay and William.
