Numeracy- making a raft to escape the island!

Today in Numeracy the children have been thinking about how they can escape the island where we have crash landed in our plane.
They had to build a raft to carry 6 people ( and a wheelchair!) and get it to float.
No one managed to get it to float but we did use our skills of teamwork, perseverance, capacity, measuring of length and weight.
Have a look at our pictures.
Can you think why they didn’t float?
What would you do differently next time?
