Harris Talented & Gifted Day

Today, ten of our Year Five students were invited to attend a morning of lessons at Harris Academy. The morning started with pupils exploring Roman numerals. Then, using this information, the children constructed bridges using Roman building methods (in a mathematical style).

After, pupils attended a science lesson where they explored the chemical reactions which are used to create fireworks. A popular lesson among the class, pupils used Bunsen burners to identify the main elements within mystery solutions.

Finally, pupils took part in a Handball based PE lesson.
