Year 6 children from eight local primary schools enjoyed a day at Chesterton Community Sports College to give them a taste of secondary school life.
They enjoyed an exciting variety of fun and challenging activities in Science, PE, History, Geography, ICT and Modern Languages.
In Geography their task was concerned with 'Helping survivors of a natural disaster'. The British Red Cross needed the help of the year 6 pupils to gather together a survival pack after the natural disaster struck. With limited budgets they were under strict time constraints to send over vital supplies to help the survivors. Thankfully they completed the task to ensure that the survivors stayed alive in the short term.
In PE Year 6 pupils competed in a multi skills relay event that required teams of pupils; supported by our House Captains, to complete challenge races to become the 'Kings of the Court'.
In Science pupils used forensic investigation skills to solve a 'crime' whilst in ICT they had the opportunity to use the brand new Apple Mac computers. The History tasks were concerned with exploring the 'Mucky Middle Ages'.
The Modern Languages department soon had the year 6 pupils using simple phrases in Spanish and French.
The Year 6 pupils all had an excellent day and are looking forward to coming up to high school next year.
The primary schools involved were: Bursley Academy, St Chad's, Chesterton Primary, Crackley Bank, Bradwell, Churchfields, St Margaret's and Springhead.
