Inventions Visitor

 

Today we were lucky enough to have a visitor come in to school as part of our inventions week. Ian B Dunne is an inventor and scientist and he was fantastic! He held two assemblies in the hall (KS1 and KS2) and then visited each class individually. He brought in a variety of inventions and spoke about them. Some were really useful and some were a bit silly! We found out that an invention is more than just an idea. An invention has to work and be unique... you can't just invent something that already exists! We also found out that the slinky spring was invented by mistake! We are going to design and pitch our own inventions over the next two days. Maybe they will be good enough to make into a real invention? We will post up our invention ideas next week.

 

Bye for now!
