Yesterday, our Year 5 and 6 children were invited to Ullswater Community College for a day of Science, English & Art. They enjoyed being put in a group with children from other local primary schools for the activities.
First of all, they had to design protection for an “astronaut” egg to be launched into “space”. It required collaboration and cooperation to try and succeed - they weren’t very successful!
The next mission was to extract DNA from a mystery “space” fruit (strawberries). This helped them to learn about secondary science experiments.
After lunch, the English department gave them a lesson in which they wrote a poem about fire and flames. They then used the inspiration for this to create a piece of ceramic art which will be displayed at UCC.
