British Science Week

St Lawrence’s took part in a variety of events for British Science Week.

Guests from Stepney Banks Stable brought in a pony to show KS1 and Early Years. The children got to stroke the beautiful animal and ask questions about how  they need to be cared for.

Children have also been fascinated by some new arrivals in the shape of chicks, which have been hatched in an incubator from eggs.

Pupils of all ages have been fascinated by the little fluffy birds and amazed to see the life cycle in action.   

Further up the school Years 3, 4 and 5 welcomed students from the Royal Grammar School into their classrooms as part of Science Week.

The A-Level candidates gave each class a 20-minute demonstration in either chemistry, biology or physics before heading off to another set of eager scientists.

Their biology experiment saw them extract DNA from a strawberry, Chemistry involved a reaction between copper and aluminium, before the physics section used a metallic slinky and plastic cup show how sound waves travel!

The pupils were also lucky enough to receive a Science Week goodie bag from RGS so they could complete some different experiments at home themselves.
