We Visit Nissan and Magistrates Visit Us!

We have had a busy time in Class 4!

Last Monday, we enjoyed an exciting trip to the Nissan Testing and Development Centre in Cranfield. We took part in their Monozukuri Caravan, which is a hands-on interactive workshop. We used Knex to build and race our own cars and had an opportunity to explore Nissan’s testing facility. We particularly enjoyed looking at the cars that had been used in crash testing and visiting the foam-filled room that is used to test the noisiness of cars.

We had a really interesting day learning about how cars are designed and tested and many of us have been inspired to consider STEM careers.

 

 

 

Later in the week, as part of PSHE, we had a visit from some magistrates. It was fascinating to hear all about the law and court system and we all learnt a lot. We then staged a mock trial. Our defendant and witnesses were very convincing and our magistrates were very fair!
