For many years we have held creative, imaginative days for primary school students at Walton-le-Dale. This year, because of the pandemic, we couldn't do that, so we decided to give primary pupils a virtual insight into the lessons that a Year 7 would experience when they joined us. Primary classes could drop in and out of the lessons as they wished and questions were asked about the subjects (or life at secondary school) via a secure question and answer system.
It was a brilliant day - all the sessions were recorded and are below, following the timetable for the day....
