Museum of Science & Industry - March 2018

As an extension of our Science Week activities, we all went as a school to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry for the day. Each class took part in a different science based workshop. Reception got involved in some ‘Counting Chaos’, Year1 /2 became ‘Inventors’, Year 3 /4 investigated the ‘Wonder of Light’ and Year 5 /6 explored ‘Circuit City’.

In between workshops we got to explore other parts of the museum too including the Experiment gallery, the engine rooms, and the SOYUZ TMA-19M space demonstration.

Here are just some of the pictures of our great day out!

On the last day of term, Diamond Class thoroughly enjoyed their day at the Science Museum in Manchester.

The first experience was in the suitably titled ‘Experiment’ zone where children got the opportunity to get hands on in a range of investigations, including many stations linked to our current Science topic of light.

Following lunch, we were wowed by a talk about Tim Peake’s exploits at the International Space Station and children had the opportunity to explore another room of facts.

Our final session linked to our next topic on circuits. In this workshop, children found out about how circuits worked through a range of investigations and even got the opportunity to frazzle the teacher! As can be seen from the photos, it was a great day to round up a very eventful term!
