Pupils at Bury Academy Trust reach for the sky in range of activities
Pupils at Bury Academy Trust reached for the sky in a stargazing event and developed their language skills and creativity in a variety of fun-filled activities.
About 100 families with a child in Key Stage 2 descended on County Upper School for the Stargazing Live event.
A pop-up planetarium allowed them to see various constellations and Jupiter’s moons while there was also the chance to make quarks.
Other recent activities have included a languages morning which saw pupils from across the trust as well as St Louis and Hardwick Middles learn Spanish, Japanese, Italian and an advanced French course. Headteacher Vicky Neale handed out certificates to those who took part.
Meanwhile, the trust’s Tollgate Primary held a Japanese Day and welcomed visitors from the Japan Foundation.
The day included workshops on calligraphy, making carp fish kites, lanterns and fans. Pupils wrote Japanese haikus, solved sodoku problems and ate a Japanese-style lunch.
More than 100 children across the primary and middle phases also entered a poster contest to advertise the trust’s Once Upon a Time concert at The Apex, on March 12, at 7pm.
Howard Middle pupil Kiera Peters was the winner. For tickets to the show visit www.theapex.co.uk
