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.
