P6 Visit W5!

27th Apr 2017
P6 Visit W5!

Primary Six pupils had a fantastic school trip today to W5 to learn more about Hurricanes! This was connected to our current topic "Exciting Extremes" where we have investigated the more dramatic aspects of the world in which we live.

Pupils investigated the conditions needed for a hurricane to form and compared the standard type to some of their more adventurous cousins (such as tornados and waterspouts). They also had a go at creating their own hurricane in a bottle as well as using real time information to track a hurricane on a map and decide whether to evacuate a town or remain in one place.

We also got to enjoy the redeveloped parts of W5, ClimbIT and some of the old favourites. We would definitely recommend this for another year!
