Y6 Trip to the Museum of Science and Industry

Year 6 enjoyed a really busy day at the Museum of Science and Industry. They explored the interactive area and tried to solve some rather tricky puzzles, which also had the teachers scratching their heads! There was also a very interesting electricity workshop where the children learnt how a dynamo works, what is needed for a circuit to function properly and looked at some of the first electrical devices including a radio hat, a hairdryer and a muscle-building belt. Despite their best efforts, however, Mr Miles remained un-frazzled!

World Book Day

Year 6 had a very busy day for World Book Day. Lots of the children came in as their favourite book characters and some of the costumes were absolutely fantastic. They also recorded stories in the recording studio which everyone really enjoyed.
