Year 5 trip to Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Taster Day at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College


A group of Year 5 pupils experienced a taster day at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and took part in some lessons and lots of fun activities to see what it would be like to attend this college.

The children began with a Geography lesson about earthquakes and, using spaghetti and marshmallows, built a structure to withstand an earthquake. They even took part in an earthquake drill - that's why we were hiding under the tables!

The children built paper rockets and tested how far they could fly, during a physics lesson. We were all very lucky to meet an African Snail and Socks (the 5ft Cornsnake) who lives in the Biology Department.

To end the day, the children carried out a science experiment in a Chemistry lesson, testing the reaction between  vinegar and bicarbonate soda. The Chemistry teacher showed the children a few more experiments that had exciting results.
