Newspaper, string and sticky tape were the only materials available to a group of aspiring engineers at Squirrels Heath Infant and Junior Schools.

The Gidea Park schools recently held a “science day” to celebrate National Science and Engineering Week, at which pupils and parents were tasked with building bridges using office supplies.

Infants headteacher Christine Drew said: “It was great to see so many families and friends working together and enjoying the sunshine too.

“The event was a great success and we hope to do more joint activities with the junior school that allow the parents a chance to work alongside their children and build a strong school community.”
