Tallest tower

Last week on Friday afternoon we had the opportunity to try build the tallest towers. And try build a bridge that could hold the thousands block. My favorite challenge was with Mr Somerville. We had to try build the tallest tower.

We had to try our hardest to build it out of very thin paper. We had to use 1metre sellotape and one glue stick with a pair of scissors. We had to think very carefully cause if we messed it up we couldn’t start again. Lots of the boys defrauded by using scrap paper but that was only our first challenge.

On our last time doing it I was on my own because I thought me by myself I could do better. I thought from the tips we had got and why our last tower fell down. I remembered why ours couldn't stand, Because we had to many crinkles. So then I rolled my paper up very carefully I used sellotape and a bit of glue. I did five rolls going up but it didn't balance so then I put some legs on the sides but it still didn't stand, so then I put on two other legs on. It balanced for over a minute. when it was time to take it in to test it I was very proud because I've been with many groups, and i found it I'm better working by myself. At the end I was the winner.
