Primary High Notes 27th May 2022
In my primary assembly I gave our School Captains and Deputy Captains a challenge, “Is it possible to get the straw through the potato?” We proceeded to debate and discuss it. Half of the children thought it was possible and half thought it couldn’t be done. Out of the 4 pupils, only one managed to complete the challenge. It was interesting for us the watch the different techniques and various attempts. George went for the direct approach and immediately managed to get the straw through. So you might be asking what was the point of ‘straw through potato’, apart from the physics of it?
