Children enjoy great reaction to science
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.”
