On Tuesday, Y6 spent a wonderful day at Woolsthorpe Manor, the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton. The day involved a tour around his early home where he made many of his amazing scientific discoveries. We saw the famous apple tree, which gave him inspiration for his theory of gravity when he observed an apple falling from it, and many of his etchings and notes.
There were also two workshops where the children could deepen their scientific knowledge and understanding. One about forces and gravity, which demonstrated clearly that they have learnt and remembered a lot from previous years, and one about light and how we see things- our most recent topic. In both workshops, the leaders were very impressed with the existing knowledge of the children and commented on how well they could answer questions and offer explanations.
A big thank you again to the HSA for helping to make this visit possible. We had a really enjoyable and successful day.
