Our Year 6 children recently visited our local King Edward’s School to take part in their annual ‘Medieval Day’. As part of their historic excursion they experienced medieval arms and armoury, medieval medicine and medieval coin-making.

‘Rocket Day’ for Year 5

Year 5 recently went to King Edward VI Five Ways school to learn about Rockets as part of National Science and Engineering week. They had a really super time and learnt a lot too! They made rockets using an empty film canister, an Alka Seltzer tablet and some water. They made quite a mess and the canisters were shooting off towards the hall ceiling!! The also made some rockets out of cardboard and launched them across the playground using a compressor. The ones made by Kitwell flew the highest and the furthest. Kitwell also had chance to see a real space rocket called “Starchaser” that will be sent into space later this year. Year 5 were disappointed that they couldn’t go inside it, though!
