Year 6 Chisnallwood Taster Day

On Wednesday the Year 6's from our school went to Chisnallwood Intermediate School for a Taster Day. A taster day is when you visit a new school and experience what they have to offer. There were two other schools there, Linwood Ave. and St. James and we all took turns rotating around to different classes.

First, our group listened to Chisnallwood's many different music groups and the other schools rotated to different classrooms. There was a jazz band, choir, orchestra, a rock band, an Irish band and many unique instruments. Our favourite instruments were the violins, saxophones, the cello and the bass.

Next, we had a sausage sizzle for lunch which also included, juice boxes, chips and fruit. After lunch we were split into eight different groups. Each of the groups went to various classes and experienced interesting activities. Some of the classrooms included: ICT, art, woodwork, sport, and a science lab. Those of us in the ICT class learned coding, robotics and learnt binary code. In the woodwork shop we made keychains and had to use drills and a heating gun.

Some of our highlights from this trip were: learning to use a drill for the first time and hearing different instruments we hadn't heard before. We're all very excited (but still a little nervous) about going to intermediate next year!
