Last week, a few of our Year 6 pupils were transported back to the 1920s during the Bellevue North Enrichment Day, held at Edenhurst Prep School in North Staffordshire.
All with a specialism in different disciplines, the pupils had to work with children from the other northern Bellevue schools to create a project which highlighted some key ideas/themes from the specified period in history.
The presentations at the end of the day were extremely varied: some groups had created art to represent the poverty divide of the time, one group designed and executed a Scratch programme on the computer, another group wrote and performed a piece of music which reflected the hard times of the working class and one group carried out an experiment on the temperature at which steam is produced to accompany their explanation of how steam engines work.
Organised and run by Sam Selby, Education Director at Bellevue, these days aim to encourage creative thinking and give children the tools they require to really explore their talents.
As ever, all Forest pupils were commended on their behaviour throughout the day and did us proud.
