Science lessons are Circus-shaped for primary pupils
Primary pupils from six Chadderton schools got an exciting glimpse of Science lessons at The Radclyffe School.
And as an fascinating bonus, Dr Ken Farquar introduced the children to science in the ‘Entertaining Science Circus Show’. Dr Ken investigated the scientific principles behind circus skills – why jugglers love gravity, how clowns use science to avoid hurting themselves and why unicyclists need to keep moving to stay still.
The pupils experienced practical science lessons in the school’s laboratories – using red cabbage to create an indicator of acids and alkalis.
Assistant Head Teacher Denise Harrison said, “It is always a pleasure to welcome the primary pupils, showing them what a fascinating and exciting subject science is. It’s a chance to inspire the students about what’s possible when they come up to secondary school and to show them the fantastic facilities we have at the school.”
