On the last day of term, Sharks and Dolphins went over to Rye College to take part in The Big Bang, an afternoon of science based activities. Our groups took part in a talk about astronomy and the formation of the planets, they also had the opportunity to look through telescopes that were extremely powerful.
They then went onto a practical session involving various scientific challenges, which really made the pupils think hard to solve the problems set before them.
Finally, the children went into the hall where various groups were demonstrating their expertise. They talked to animal specialists, electricians who helped the children to make simple torches, students who were testing forces and others who were making a variety of chemical combinations.
All in all the children and staff had an amazing afternoon and were buzzing with knowledge and excitement to find out more!
