Junior School Science Week
Interstellar exploration, microscopic investigation and skyward propulsion were all in a day’s lessons for Infants and Juniors during the inaugural Junior School Science Week.
As part of Britain’s celebration of science during the British Science Association’s British Science Week, pupils took part in a packed programme of experiments, workshops and visits from medical experts.
The week kicked-off with a bang when the Science Boffins brought their unique blend of experiments and fun to the Junior School. The Boffins’ demonstrations went from steaming toilet rolls to dry ice and culminated in a thrilling rocket launch on the School fields at the end of the day.
Juniors had the opportunity to see what life is like in the Senior School science labs when they visited Dr Anne Carlin’s classroom for a special Chemistry workshop.
Pupils were seeing stars mid-week as they stepped inside a mobile planetarium, unveiling the wonders of the universe from the comfort of the Music School!
The week was rounded off with visits from the University of Manchester’s Faculty of Life Sciences, exploring the microscopic world, and CHS’s own parent experts, learning about at the work of a GP, investigating teeth and looking at the science behind polymers.
