Each week this term Year 5 are taking part in a ‘Bright Sparks’ initiative with students from Warwick University. The children will be taking part in activities relevant to different times in history. Last week they learnt about the impact of the Romans on engineering in Britain, and had a competition to see which table group could make the strongest bridge- much fun was had! In the coming weeks they will be learning about Parliament and will take part in a court room scene, in addition to aspects of philosophy and medicine. As well as learning historical information, the children will be hearing about the different subjects that can be studied in university, and the opportunities university gives, to inspire them.
