Chil­dren en­joy great re­ac­tion to science

Macclesfield Express - - NOSTALGIA - RHIANNON MCDOWALL

KIDS at Bosley St Mary’s had a fan­tas­tic week build­ing a Lego town and eat­ing ba­nanas in the name of science.

The ac­tiv­i­ties were or­gan­ised as part of science week, which in­cluded work­shops led by vis­it­ing com­pany, Elec­tro City, science teach­ers from Ea­ton Bank Acad­emy, an emer­gency first aider and a joint schools science morn­ing spon­sored by As­traZeneca.

The stu­dents built a huge Lego town wired up with bulbs and cir­cuits so that it came alight once the room was dark­ened.

They also en­joyed a Chi­nese-themed puppet show de­signed by the Key Stage Two class, and wel­comed par­ent Caro­line Storer who is a first aider, com­mu­nity first re­spon­der and first aid in­struc­tor.

She brought an am­bu­lance car and first aid train­ing equip­ment to the school. Sev­eral year four pupils joined other schools for an in­spir­ing morn­ing of sci­en­tific dis­cov­ery, which in­cluded mak­ing a lava lamp in a bot­tle and ex­tract­ing banana DNA.

Teacher Rachel Mor­tishire-Smith said: “Science Week is fast be­com­ing a favourite an­nual fix­ture in the spring term cal­en­dar at Bosley St Mary’s.”
