On Saturday, 5th October Brine Leas School in Nantwich opened its doors to around 200 pupils from years 5 and 6 of primary schools throughout Crewe and Nantwich for its annual 'Activity Day'. The youngsters opted to become actively involved in a wide range of practical activities- from making chocolate creatures in the cookery room to programming Lego robots with IT staff; developing forensic skills in the laboratory while making and launching their own rockets with the help of technology staff; learning new game skills in the Sports Hall, devising a dance and printing bags with their own designs -- were just some of the workshops on offer to introduce them to the staff and facilities available at a large secondary school.
