Youngsters go experimental for science day
YOUNGSTERS were able to try out different experiments when their school held a science day.
Year one and two pupils at Thorpe House School, in Gerrards Cross, took part in the event on Thursday, April 30.
Boys at the school went along to the science lab and were able to watch what happens when copper chloride and potassium chloride are held over a Bunsen burner, and were interested to see the flames change colour.
They also learned about the importance of wearing protective clothing when taking part in science experiments.
Year one pupils made their own rockets and were also given the chance to make shadow puppets.
Natasha Doran, head of pre-prep at the school, said: “The boys have thoroughly enjoyed science day and it has been a joy seeing how much they have got out of all the different experiments and investigations they have taken part in.
“Science is a very important part of the
