Stephen Tong Poltairs School Year 6 Open Day

Almost 400 Year 6 children from local primary schools spent the day at Poltair School on Wednesday trying out a variety of exciting learning activities including geo-caching, designing and making, science experiments, drama and maths puzzles. The pupils were escorted by their teachers and support staff and were able to enjoy a cooked lunch and an introduction to all that Poltair has to offer.

In the science labs the children were able to try out the Bunsen burners to collect hydrogen gas. In the design technology building they were set the challenge to make a paper holdall for water bottles using just 12 pages and one glues stick.

One of the many highlights of the day was the headteacher Stephen Tong's address in which he told a funny and amazing story illustrated with helium-filled balloons!

It was certainly a day to remember for all concerned
