At playtime, they walked around school woods to learn about ecology.

Children watched an egg rotting in a bowl full of fizzy pop to learn how some drinks can rot your teeth.

Lois Priggen, seven, took the chance to show our photographer how it works.

Expert visitors taught them about anatomy, geology, space exploration, medical research, veterinary science, badger ecology and chemistry.

The school’s annual poetry recital competition also had a science theme.

Subject head Nikki Holmes said: “It has been hugely motivating and stimulating for both pupils and teachers alike.”
