As part of their science work on forces, Lime Tree Class walked down to the Middy to look at forces in action in the trains there. They were met by Katie who showed them the couplings and buffers on the trains, how the points mechanisms worked and how the coupling rods pushed and pulled the wheels round. The children had a great time and it was fantastic for them to have the opportunity to apply what they had learnt in a different setting.
The highlight was definitely when each child was able to send the air rocket high into the air!
Our thanks to Katie and all the other volunteers at the Middy who chatted to the children and answered all their many questions as we went round.
