Year 1 are learning about different materials as part of their Science lessons – and this week our focus has been metal. Today we had a visit from 2 people from DJN Ltd – a company that works with metal. Ryan and Darren brought examples of different metals and the children were able to handle the metal and ask questions. Anthony wanted to know if you could paint metal, Bailey asked “Where does metal come from?” and Tommy wanted to know how our visitors got into working with metal.
The children were then shown how different metals reacted to magnets ( they will learn more about magnetism in Year 3), and then how people working with metal keep safe.
Ryan and Darren both emphasised that to work in their company you had to be good at Maths, Reading, Writing and Science – so Year 1 are already making a very good start to being future metal workers.
