Fun at the fire station

What a fantastic day Year 1 have had at the fire station. They learnt lots about the role of fire fighters and what to do in the event of a fire. They had the opportunity to use the equipment and even got to sit in the fire engine. We were also lucky to see an ambulance too! What a brilliant day. Thank you to the firefighters at Swansea Central Fire Station for taking the time to help us learn more about their important role.

Faraday Engineers

Year 6 have had a very challenging day today. They became engineers for the day and had the fulfil a STEM workshop to design and make an aeroplane and a transporter. Each member of the group had a role and each group were given 140 Faradays to buy the materials to make the plane and transporter.
The plane needed to fly and then be transported 3 meters.
The children worked extremely well as a team and definitely have developed their skills in engineering… look out future…here we come!
