Bolton School hosted a Technology Festival for local Year 4
primary school pupils, providing an opportunity for them to make
use of the School's technology facilities and to absorb themselves
in the subject for the day.
Ten local Primary Schools each brought along four Gifted and
Talented year 4 pupils, who got the chance to spend a whole day
focusing on technology and to experience activities in different
technology areas. The day had a carnival theme - in Resistant
Materials the pupils produced plastic masks which they each
decorated in their own way, in Textiles they made colourful
headdresses decorated with printed fabrics, and in Food
Technology they made their own scone based pizzas with a variety of
toppings. At the end of the day certificates were awarded to all
pupils for taking part.
Schools taking part included Blackrod, Chorley New Road, Church
Road, Clarendon, Claypool, Devonshire Road, St Michael's, St
Peter's Farnworth, St Philip's Atherton and The Valley.
This is the second year the Technology festival has been held,
part of the series of annual events in different subjects that the
School coordinates for primary school boys and girls to attend,
including festivals in Science, Maths, Languages and Sport. The
events enable local youngsters to spend time in the school, be
instructed by highly qualified staff and enjoy a day using the
facilities and resources in events that span the curriculum.
