Year 8 Challenge Weeks

Posted: 26th June 2020

Year 8s began the first of their Challenge Week tasks this week – the Dyson Bridge Building Challenge. Among experiments to test how far pasta can be bent before it breaks, one pupil, to remain nameless, asked if spaghetti can be softened enough to make an arch by cooking it on a teacher’s car bonnet!

In the second of their Challenge Week tasks, Year 8 took to the grounds for their annual Inter-Element debate! Congratulations to Air who won this challenge and to Flora who won ‘Best Speaker’ for her presentation and debating skills both on the stage and on the floor.
