A Thrill-seeking Day at Chessington

Rollercoasters, Forces and Wild Animals!

Although it was a rather wet day, with many rain showers, year 6 had a fantastic day at Chessington today. All children took part in a workshop where they were able to further their understanding of forces, which they had been learning about in their topic lessons. During the session, they had to create a rollercoaster that allowed a marble to jump into a cup and test different materials to see which one created the most amount of friction.

For the rest of the day, the children were able to try out a range of different rides from the Vampire to the Rattle Snake to Dragons Fury to the Gruffalo ride. We tried to squeeze in as much as possible into our day. We even got to see some wild giraffes on the Zufari ride and the tigers at Tiger Rock.

Take a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to.
