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 schools brought along four gifted and talented
Year 4 pupils, who enjoyed 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,
pupils produced and decorated plastic masks, 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, 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.
