Last week was a very busy week for school visits at South Rise. To support this term’s science learning, focused on electricity, Year 4 visited the Science Museum. They took part in a workshop in the Equinor Gallery: Wonder Lab. This part of the museum is about children using their skills, experimenting and thinking as a scientist – being curious, looking closely and thinking creatively. They were given the opportunity to get hands on, completing broken circuits, detecting face moving electrons and observing bolts of static electricity. The children were full of excitement about their visit and were particularly enthusiastic about the giant slides!
As part of their literacy learning, our Reception children visited Under One Roof to see the production of The Three Little Pigs. The children laughed lots and enjoyed joining in with key phrases from the story. There was also an opportunity for the children to build a house for one of the pigs. This was a really memorable visit for the children.
Finally, Year 3 took part in a London Bubble Theatre trip to the banks of the River Thames. This experience involved talking part in an archaeological dig for Stone Age relics. This trip allowed the children to consolidate their learning about this period in history.
