We then looked at how this may be different depending on peoples circumstances such as homelessness. We then identified the impact this may have on children and their readiness to learn.

    Year 6 have been given challenges to make the tallest tower they could using only paper and scissors and the longest bridge that is strong enough to support the weight of eight cubes. They have had to use a lot of trial and error and use their knowledge of how the Golden Gate bridge was constructed to help them. They found out that having a structurally sound and supportive base/foundation was essential in the success of their challenge.
