Year 6 had
a fantastic time at Paulton’s Park as part of the science and ICT curriculum.
They studied forces and energy systems in rollercoaster rides and then used
their ICT skills to program a ride themselves. A highlight of the trip was visiting
Professor Blast’s lab where the children were able to study the rides close up
and learn about the forces acting on them. Even though the heavens opened over Romsey for much of the day, for some reason Paultons remained dry and sunny and we
were able to enjoy the park without a drop of rain!
