On Friday 10th March, Year 6 visited Sprowston High School for a technology day. We split into 3 groups and took part in cooking, textiles and woodwork activities.
We got the chance to make cookies and smoothies which, in our opinion, were all delicious! We made kites, using saws, lathes and files: a real challenge but really fun. We also used our new and improved sewing skills to make patterned bunting.
The day was really fun and gave us all a good taste of what High School would be like next year. It was lovely to see a few past pupils there too.
As part of our Topic on Living Things, Class 3 have been learning about microorganisms. We were lucky to have a visit from Helen, a scientist who specialises in studying bacteria. She taught us lots of interesting things about harmful and helpful bacteria. She brought some bacteria in for us to look at. We couldn’t see it but we could see the trail it had left in the Petri dish! She also showed us some fruit flies munching on mushy banana. A bit disgusting but very interesting!
