Last week pupils enjoyed activities in their lessons to celebrate Science Week.

Year 5 enjoyed rescuing Eggbert by using their scientific knowledge to construct a parachute to save Eggbert from a fall! Year 6 made shadow puppets to tie in with their topic on light. STEM ambassadors from Newcastle University came in to work with Year 7 on a CSI themed workshop using cryptography and extracting the DNA from a strawberry. Year 8 took part in a ‘potions’ class. They were pleased to know they didn’t have to write the chemical equation for ‘ghoul goo’ with ‘shredded lizard gizard’!
