Year 2 had a fabulous day at the ThinkTank Science Museum in Birmingham last Friday. The children took part in a wide range of interactive science exhibitions and learning zones.
Our first task was to explore the Little Brum role play zone. There were a wide range of role play shops and building areas with science challenges incorporated. The Year 2 boys enjoyed teaching each other the best way to lay bricks to create a sturdy wall!
We also enjoyed a session in the Science Garden. There were lots of challenges involving water which were very popular. The children challenged each other to boat races and discovered where to place the boat to win every time. They also discovered how canal locks work, ran in a hamster wheel and used their upper body strength to pull themselves up into the air.
We also had the opportunity to learn about our bodies and how they work and discovered how trains, planes and trams were powered in the past.
All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the day. There really was so much to see and do!Take a closer look at what we got up to…
