Building Bridges During National Apprenticeship Week

Our Yr9 students were fortunate enough to work alongside MJA Consulting this Monday, during National Apprenticeship Week.

After a presentation from one of the structural engineers, the students were put into groups and given the task to construct their own bridge. 

The groups of students had to discuss how their bridge was going to look and work, before giving their completed design to one of the engineers to approve.  

They then had to decide how they were going to build their bridge using paper, string and sellotape.

They had 45 minutes in which to create their bridge and it did become very competitive at times, especially towards the end when they were adding weights to the bridges to see how strong they were.

The winning group managed to build a bridge that held 6.05kg, closely followed by a group whose bridge held 5.80kg.

We decided they were all worthy winners!

Congratulations to Alice, Harper, Kian, Jackson and Kyle. 

A big well done also to: Destina, Asmaa, Toby and Riley.

MJA are kindly giving Amazon vouchers to both teams for their ideas, their effective communication and team working skills.

Following on from Mondays success, on Tuesday this week, it was very encouraging to see so many Yr10s choose to engage in our Apprenticeship Workshop after the presentation to the whole year group.

They created accounts on the Government Apprenticeship website and spent the session looking at available apprenticeships in our local area. 

Some students were surprised to see 48 live vacancies within a 10 mile radius and felt optimistic about finding an apprenticeship; if this is what they decide to do after completing their GCSEs.
