Science and Religious Studies group enhance learning at Manchester sites

A group of pupils at Rydal Penrhos got the chance to enhance their learning on a recent trip.

The Year 8 Religious Studies and Science pupils' at the school visited Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), in addition to the city’s Jewish Museum (MJM) on Wednesday, May 17.

The MOSI’s interactive displays and range of exhibitions kept the pupils very busy and engaged, including the Graphene exhibition which enabled those that attended to gain an understanding of the material, its properties and uses.

They also explored Manchester’s industrial past and visited the Air and Space hall to observe the collection of aircraft and space-related objects, with a particular highlight being the flight simulators.

The MJM rounded off the day with talks and activities run by the museum’s staff to bring the pupils’ current study of Judaism to life. 

Head of Lower School Gabriella Murphy, said: “Not only were the synagogue’s features explored, but the Jewish way of life was discussed and explained; something that is a vital part of our pupils’ education to bring about tolerance and understanding in a world that has become increasingly divisive.”
