Year 5 and Year 6 were visited by a Marine Engineer sponsored by the Sea Cadets. The children had lots of fun taking part is practical activities which increased their knowledge and understanding of buoyancy, as well as their practical understanding of the skills used by engineers. It was an inspiring lesson which linked learning in the classroom to the real world.
Year 6 visited APS Group nurseries in Ash today. The leading supplier of British tomatoes. This trip embedded the children's existing science knowledge, as well as providing links between what we learn in the classroom and the real world. The children greatly increased their science capital and now have a better understanding of the many STEM roles and careers within the business.
