Year 6 Science trip to Viladrau, Spain

Nine lucky year 6 children recently spent a week in Spain visiting our Partner school in Viladrau, a tiny village school set in the rural area of Catalan. Over the past two years Canning Street have been working with partners in Norway, Spain, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia and Greece to improve the teaching and learning of science.

 

The year 6 children worked with peers from the partner school and other schools in the area to investigate and carry out scientific experiments. They also visited the science museum in Barcelona where there were many hands on activities and an indoor tropical rain forest.  During the visit they had the opportunity to experience the culture of the area and take part in the sports day with an emphasis on the importance of exercise and healthy living. They also took part in a nature project examining the contents of a local river and testing the clarity of the water, the results of which are officially  recorded each year by the Spanish authorities.
