The Marshmallow Challenge

In Year 4, we are all about marshmallows...we were set the challenge of trying to build the tallest tower using:


  • 20 spaghetti sticks
  • 1 metre of sellotape
  • 1 metre of string
  • 1 marshmallow


We could use as much or as little of the resources provided but we had to use our Growth Mindset and work together in teams. It proved tricky...but we didn't give up...we 'Percy Persevered'.  Using the 'Rainbow of Reflection', we thought about ways we might approach the challenge next time.

We even used our maths skills to measure out the sellotape and string!
