Today Year 3 travelled to Lancaster University to take part in our follow up to the Pilkington Pottery sessions we had in school. We found out lots about why Pilkington Pottery is a famous national company. We all had the chance to take part in a movement session creating lots of different shapes with our bodies, an art workshop where we used moulds to make clay pots and we had a tour around the engineering building using 3D pens and viewed the products made by 3D printers. We all had a fantastic visit and we were really impressed with the university.
We had a brilliant time with the Houses of Parliament Loan Box. The artefacts were really interesting and some of us had the chance to dress up! We then took part in a class debate and worked in groups to write a bill for a law we felt would improve the school community. What a fantastic experience!!
