KS1 at the Thinktank

27 May 2016

Key Stage 1 took part in a fabulous trip to Think Tank to develop their understanding and knowledge of Science. Pupils had the opportunity to experience technology from the past, present and future in a child friendly, interactive way.

Pupils had time to learn about Birmingham's Spitfire Story. They loved exploring the gallery which tells the story of the Spitfire and the role it played in the Second World War. The Science Garden was one our highlights where we loved the outdoor discovery space which was packed with surprises and fun activities. We had adventures whilst playing with the hands-on exhibits which brought themes of engineering, mechanics and transportation to life.

We saw the mighty steam machines that powered the Industrial revolution and enjoyed seeing some of the remarkable vehicles that kept people moving in Birmingham and beyond. In the mini city we played and learned together, dressing up and role playing. The Street revealed the science behind everyday life and we tested out smart ways to recycle rubbish.

Children were enthusiastic and engaged throughout the day and commented on how wonderful the experience was.
