Clever construction has been spotted in Hinckley Pre-school – The children have been super busy searching for and working out which objects and what combinations can make the best marble run!
Working together they investigated how different pieces of guttering, tubes and tracks could be placed at different angles on the Tuff tray support and were absolutely fascinated and thoroughly engaged, devising the fastest way for the marbles get to the bottom. Thinking outside of the box, the children then shared ideas between each other and used their initiative to see what else they could send down the run. They poured sand and sent cars on a fast journey down the track!
