4B at Raikes Lane

4B have had a great day at Raikes Lane learning all about recycling. We got to wear protective clothing and have a look around the plant, do lots of activities linked to recycling and we made our own gift bags out of recycled materials.

Inventor – Trevor Baylis CBE

During world of work week, we were looking at inventions and found out about Trevor Baylis, who invented the wind up radio. We got in contact with Trevor and although he couldn’t come into school to talk to us he said if we sent him some questions he would reply. He sent us two powerpoint presentations back (one for each class) with an individual video on each slide answering our questions. Click the link below to watch them!

In literacy, we have also written some biographies of his life. Click on the link to see a few examples of our writing.
