Year 1 head to the Bracknell Discovery Centre

The children thoroughly enjoyed their first school trip in Year 1. We went to The Discovery Centre in Bracknell for a super science day. The day started with very energetic children getting stuck into various scientific workstations. They were able to demonstrate their strength and muscles in the 'Forces and Movement' section while displaying pure amazement in the 'Body and Perception' section. We then participated in an 'Animal and Human' workshop where the children enjoyed learning about different animals and their habitats. Children had the opportunity to use their knowledge from their previous science lessons to join in with some fascinating activities involving some of the senses.The children had a great day and enjoyed working as a team to; build a house on a building site, splash boats down a river, chase spotlights in a disco room and take pictures using a shadow camera. They all had some great questions during our visit and they felt each activity showed and taught them something new. Due to all the excitement from the day, we had a very quiet journey on the way home, where most of the children took a well deserved nap!
