Cedar 2 having story time during our Literacy lesson. We all got a chance to choose a story to read together.

Maple 2’s trip to the Science and industry museum

In Maple 2 the pupils had a fun trip to the science and industry museum. Using the shadow wall, they learnt different ways to make light and how they create shadows. Each pupil independently observed each other to see how they can duplicate that result. 

Maple 2 then had the opportunity to continue to explore the museum. The pupils created music with their bodies, they experienced looking at themselves through a thermal camera and how to create handprints through our heat sources. 

They then explored Revolution Manchester and saw how technology has developed throughout the years. This included Cottonopolis, the textiles gallery and how machines work.

Well done Maple 2 for Active listening, exploring independently and for gaining new skills!
