Year 5 engineering workshop

5W enjoyed a fabulous trip to Leighton Park on Tuesday 24th January.

They participated in a DT workshop, which focused on making motorised buggies that had to tackle steep terrain. The theme of resilience and perseverance prevailed throughout.

The children learned that it had taken Mr Dyson over 5000 attempts to make a functional cyclone style vacuum and that he had learned from each mistake along the way. They loved being in a big school environment. Lunch was also a hit, with most children going up for seconds! 

We also experienced 2 silences which are part of the Quaker school approach and were an opportunity for us to reflect. Well done Year 5 and thank you, Leighton Park!
