What goes up!

3, 2, 1 … Go! Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their exhilarating trip to Chessington on Friday. Our day began by experiencing the twists and turns of scorpion express and later learning about the forces involved when we took part in our workshop. The children even got to design and build their own fairground ride using K’nex! After learning about gravity, spinning forces and how central petal forces kept us safe, the children were able to spot the mechanisms that helped each ride work, particularly on dragon fury where the wheels helped the ride move. All year six teachers were extremely proud of everyone’s behaviour which was of course impeccable. A great day had by all!
Below are some photos of our spectacular day. More to come shortly!
