Year 5 – EXPLORE UNIVERSITY PROJECT

Today, we have been busy learning about university life. The “Explore University” project is organised by Keele University, Staffordshire University, University of Wolverhampton and Harper Adams University and aims to help primary school children understand more about university. The children were challenged to recreate many aspects of a university using lego. Year 5 showed great resilience, teamwork and imagination throughout the morning. Well done!

There is also lots of stationery to buy!

These may be an ideal gift, especially with Christmas just around the corner.

The children are visiting the Book Fair during the day and will bring back lots of information about books that they are interested in.

You can pay on the day you visit the fair by cash or card, using your phone. Or you can pre-order any of the books on the invitation above by clicking this link and selecting ‘I am unable to attend the Book Fair.’
