Caythorpe Primary School enjoy trip to Magna Science Adventure Centre as part of new term

Primary school children had a special trip to start their new study topic.

Children from Caythorpe Primary School, Lincolnshire, started their new class topic, What Makes The Earth Angry, with a visit to the award-winning Magna Science Adventure Centre, Rotherham.

Narnia class experienced hands-on activities at the former steelworks.

The year three and four pupils explored the world of science and technology and visited all of the pavilions, each of which is dedicated to the Earth’s four classical elements.

Youngsters had the opportunity to take part in a workshop run by the Magna staff, and caused volcanic eruptions using vinegar and baking powder as part of experiments.

The children began the day by visiting the earth pavilion.

It was there that they controlled toy JCBs, became rock sorters and detonated a miniature quarry face.

In the air pavilion, pupils created patterns with air cannon, played with a tornado and explored how sound is made.

Children from Caythorpe’s Narnia class are pictured above during their visit.
