Carnival of Technology for Local Primaries
Friday, 15 June 2012
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.
