Visitors from Staffordshire University have come in to school to teach Year 5 all about what going to university is like and to tell them about the campus. The children had to then design a university campus out of Lego! They had to include all of the buildings on the campus, including the Halls of Residence, and make the things that go inside. We had some fantastic designs and the children had a great time working together to make them.
St Peter’s were visited by the Learn By Design team on 19th November and Years 4, 5 & 6 were challenged to construct a track that would start at London and end at Newcastle-upon-Tyne. They had to come up with a way of crossing water and create a strong and durable structure working as a team. They all worked so hard to come up with creative ways that they could construct the best track. The children have also learned all about the careers involved in engineering tracks, including the new high speed railway currently being built.
