Think Tank Visit

Last Friday, our Year 3’s had an exciting trip to the Thinktank museum in Birmingham!

This trip gave children the opportunity to explore a variety of Science based exhibits. They also attended two workshops:

 

  • The first workshop was around ‘Forces and Friction’, which included fishing for magnetic and non magnetic fish to discover that all metals are not magnetic! They also catapulted different cubes on a smooth surface to investigate the effects of different surfaces on friction.

 

  • The second workshop was on ‘Light and shadows’ where the children actively took part in a quiz on light sources and making a shadow puppet show. They were amazed at how light absorbing materials worked!

 

The children finished off the day with a trip to the outside play area, where they explored machines and enjoyed the water play area, with some children getting a little wet!
