Lessons might have been over but that didn’t stop more than 250 children and parents taking part in an after school competition at Rush Green Primary on Friday.
The Dagenham Road school was celebrating national science week, with a week of lessons based on the subject.
It culminated in a bridge competition where parents and children were tasked with using newspaper and cellotape to create the strongest design possible.
It was inspired by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the English civil engineer, who built the Great Western Railway.
Organiser Stephen Moon, phase leader for Years 5 and 6, said: “The children really enjoyed the competition as their competitive sides came out and it was also good to get the parents involved.”
