Children from Key Stage 2 visited the Old Operating Theatre and Southwark Cathedral in London. On this trip the children learnt about early medicine and surgery. They made their own medicine using herbs and spices and performed an amputation!
A group of children from Years 4 and 5 visited the Bank of England Museum and the Guildhall Art Gallery for a combined Science and History trip. At the Museum they learnt about the history of the Bank of England and what it does now; interest and inflation; and the security features of bank notes. They also tried to lift a gold bar and to balance the economy!
Well done to all the children who went on the trip to visit the Science Museum. Their behaviour and conduct was excellent throughout the day. All the children learnt a whole variety of new things and felt really inspired by what they saw and learnt!
A group of Year 5 and Year 6 children went to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for Make the Future Live – a four day festival of ideas and innovation sponsored by Shell. The festival brought science and engineering to life through hands-on activities and interactive science shows. They even got the chance to watch university students battle it out at the world-famous Shell Eco-marathon where they designed, built and tested ultra energy-efficient cars.
