Class 4 had a brilliant afternoon, with a visit from Nick Corston of STEAM Co.

An inspiring introductory talk highlighted the  importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, including such things as how ‘cats eyes’ were developed to light up the roads.  Nick did a fantastic job at tying our topic of The Victorians in to this session by leading a discussion about inventors Brunel and Stephenson.

The children then made their own rockets and we had amazing fun firing them off from the field.  Just underneath this gallery are some videos – make sure you scroll down!
