Year 3 Visit the Look Out Discovery Centre

Junior School

The girls had the opportunity to explore a variety of activities and really enjoyed the ‘hands on’ experience.

Making a hot air balloon rise, controlling a pulley system and playing a tune on a giant keyboard were just some of the fun and educational activities the girls enjoyed.  They were particularly fascinated by the model of the human torso where they could remove and replace the organs inside, hopefully in the right place!  The area experimenting with light and sound also proved very popular and the concave and convex mirrors gave the girls endless amusement.

After lunch the children had a talk about the wildlife found around the area, focusing particularly on the Life Cycle.  Dressing up as a bug and acting out the process of the cycle was a fun way of understanding how each creature depends upon another in order to survive. The girls then took nets outside to hunt for insects which they then examined under a magnifying glass.

Some of the comments made by the girls about the trip:-

‘I really enjoyed bug hunting, because it made me stop being frightened of spiders.’ Keya.

‘Activating the water fountains was brilliant!’ Daniella.

‘It was a real challenge connecting the circuit to make the light bulb work.’ Charlotte.

The girls had an exciting and educational day which they thoroughly enjoyed.  Many thanks as ever to the parent helpers who supported us on the trip. - Mrs E Buckler
