On Thursday 6th June children in Years 3 and 4 were visited by a group of students from Walton Girls’ High School. The Walton students inspired and engaged the children with a series of workshops on the theme of space. They kicked the afternoon off with a space quiz in the hall and our children eagerly answered their questions. Following a presentation, the children split off into groups to write space poems and create their own solar system with polystyrene balls and paint (a bit messy, but great fun). The final session, run by the performing arts team at Walton, was a solar system dance. The Walton students had planned, resourced and prepared everything. It was fantastic to welcome such a hardworking and motivated group of young people into our school and a wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by all!
There will be an open afternoon on Thursday 20th June at Walton Girls’ High School, where each child in Year 3 and 4 from Belmont (and no more than 2 accompanying adults) is invited to showcase their work. Further information will be sent home this week.
