Year 4's Spectacular Project!

A Design and Engineering project, which brings together Year 4 pupils, the world famous Cirque du Soleil and super-talented engineers from Rolls Royce, has started in spectacular fashion.

Year 4 classes have been to the Albert Hall to see TOTEM, a performance by the Cirque du Soleil.

 The visit to Cirque du Soleil is part of a borough wide project run in partnership with Rolls Royce. The project begins with a visit to Cirque du Soleil to watch the show and observe the set mechanisms. Then, over a number of weeks, the children work with Rolls Royce engineers to design their own sets that use pulleys, gears and levers to move in a similar fashion. At the end of the project all schools come together to share their creations.
