In the last week of term we visited Torkington Primary School to take part in a ‘Forest Schools’ day, which was fantastic! I’ve just started going through the wonderful photos taken by our excellent cameraman,Yanal, when I came across this great shot of Mahwish 🙂 More photos to follow.

All of Year 6 did a fantastic job working together in teams  to build their ‘Crumpsall Racers’ during National Science and Engineering Week. There could, however, only be one winning team and that was team ‘Ma SHEEN’!Very well done to all team ‘Ma SHEEN’ members, who completed the 6 lap race in the quickest time of all the groups.

Here is a picture of team ‘Ma SHEEN’s’ winning racer and a video beneath of it’s test run.
