Year 6 took part in a ‘hands on’ science lesson at Seven Acres Nature Reserve in Bolton - the perfect setting for them to explore the natural world! They engaged with an array of habitats, including woodland and grassland areas. The children enjoyed finding leaves and twigs in order to identify different trees and spent time pond-dipping. Classification keys were used by the children to identify the different species found.
Despite the rain, a fun-filled, muddy time was had by all!

We loved our Victorian Courtroom workshop- we were all given parts to act out and the judge even got to decide the fate of Isabella Makin, the defendant. We were amazed to hear that this was based on a real case in the 1800's. After the workshop we explored the museum with a guide who talked to us about how the Police force has changed since the original "Peelers" and how prisoners used to be punished by picking oakum and laundry.
