Mrs Reeves and Mrs Williams from the Blackburn Central High School science department had the immense pleasure of taking science to Intack Primary School before the Easter break.
Starting with a WOW! assembly, they turned Vimto into water, milk, milkshake and lemonade and made elephant toothpaste. The staff and students were in awe of the science magic and gave a spontaneous burst of applause!
Throughout the day, children from nursery to Year 6 took part in science investigations including forensic chromatography, making pinhole cameras, flying Zappy Zoomers and making a cabbage indicator (which din’t smell too pleasant!).
Intack primary school staff and students enjoyed the day and gave some very positive feedback:
“It was the best lesson; we learnt science that we can do at home.”
“Assembly really ‘wowed’ staff and children. Amazing how something simple can encourage so much enthusiasm and curiosity.”
“I didn’t like the zoomers – I LOVED them!”
