Discovery Museum Visit Year 1 and Year 2

Our topic in Year 1 and Year 2 this term is materials and mechanisms so this week we have been on an exciting trip to the Discovery Museum. We visited examples of world firsts in transport including Charles Parson's Turbinia and Stephenson's steam engines. The highlight of our trip was the exhibition - 'All the Fun of the Fair' looking at the history of the Hoppings fun fair. Each child was given £1 worth of old pennies to use in the old machines. The children absolutely loved playing with the vintage racing and pinball amusements using the old penny coins to play.

The children were very well behaved and we all had a fantastic trip
