brine leas activity day children

Hundreds of youngsters from around Nantwich descended on Brine Leas Academy to enjoy the school’s annual Activity Day.

The event is designed to give year 5 and 6 pupils a taste of life in high school once they leave primary.

And once again Brine Leas School opened its doors to around 250 pupils from primary schools throughout both Crewe and Nantwich.

The youngsters took part in a wide range of practical activities – from making chocolate creatures in the cookery room to ceramic animals in the art room.

They also developed their “CSI” skills in the laboratory while designing, making and launching their own rockets with the help of technology staff.

There will be a second chance to visit the school on Wednesday October 8 when the school opens its doors to the public between 9.30am and midday and then 1.30pm to 3pm for the annual Open Day.
