On Friday the 2nd of November year 4, from Bearwood Primary School, visited the Think Tank in Birmingham because they wanted to learn about electricity as it was part of their topic.
This was year 4’s first trip this term. They had arrived at the Think Tank at 10:30. They had been taken there by coach because it was the fastest way to get there. When they arrived at the amazing Think Tank they were really excited and there was a guide to show them around. After that, they went to a show called ‘Electrifying Science’. There were lots of seats and all the pupils sat on them. They were watching a lady making electricity in many different ways. Next, the lady rubbed a balloon on her hair and stuck it on the wall. They were putting their hands up because they wanted to be volunteers. Year 4 dressed up in funny costumes. When the show finished they got in their groups because they did not want to get lost.
Then, when the show finished, they went to the street. There were lots of interactive displays for them to play with. They started to play with them, but it was time to go and eat. Year 4 sat on the table with their lunch boxes and ate their food. They went to this place called ‘Things about me’. They were so excited because there was an exercise machine.
Mustafa, a year 4 pupil, said, “I enjoyed the trip and learnt a lot about electricity”. Aryan, another year 4 pupil, said, “It was an amazing trip and I would go there again with my parents”. Miss Thomas, a year 4 teacher, said, “The visit allowed the children to learn a lot in an exciting and fun way.”
Miss Haywood, Head teacher from Bearwood Primary, said, “The trip for the students was good because the students loved it and it helped them to learn about electricity. I am going to go and check it out myself”. If you would like more information go to www.ThinkTank.co.uk.
