Sacred Heart pupils ‘do’ science

Pupils at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and Nursery, held a full day of science fun and experiments, celebrating British Science Week.

The Year 5 children who had been working with an external STEM science consultant were able to put their scientific knowledge into practice as they became teachers for the day. The children demonstrated a total of 20 different science experiments to each of the other classes.

The experiments included testing acids, alkalis and neutralisation, discovering how light travels, using their forensic science skills to observe individual finger prints and much more. They used their outstanding scientific knowledge to teach all children and parents from reception to Year 6, throughout the day.

Headteacher, Mrs Roach said: “All staff at Sacred Heart work extremely hard to make learning fun and exciting and keep the children fully engaged. We were delighted that so many parents came and were able to learn new things alongside their children”.
