Reception and Year 1 Explore MOSI

Reception and Year 1 had a terrific time exploring the Museum of Science & Industry and enjoyed some wonderful activities, talks, and workshops.  They found out how a steam train worked, and how the first inter-city railway made history right here in Manchester and how Rocket changed our world and the way we travel forever.

We also learnt the tricks of the trade to become weavers, scavengers and piecers as they turned cotton into the thread that made everything from napkins to knickers!

Reception took part in a Counting Chaos workshop. They met Joseph Green, Station Master at the Liverpool Road Railway Station. He counts every object that travels in and out of the station. From tasty fruit to mischievous sheep, every day is a challenge. However, this day was different—he had our help! They enjoyed a large-scale, interactive and multi-sensory story time session that prompted the children to use their counting and investigation skills. Incorporating rhyme, repetition and even a treasure hunt, the show helped to develop positive relationships and team-working skills.

Year 1 enjoyed a high-energy, mischievous show that inspired curiosity, drawing out questions about real-life figures and basic engineering concepts. Celebrating creativity and invention.  They went back to 1885 to learn about the Salford-based inventor, Hans Renold, who was working on the invention of his bush roller chain, a device that changed the world. They tested his inventions in his workshop, learning how to transfer motion and the forces involved.

It was a wonderful trip which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
