Attleborough Primary School held a day of experiments.

The activities, overseen by Ruth Bartram, year four teacher and science coordinator, were made all the more fun by dressing up as scientists, complete with goggles and white coats.

Experiments included making bubble snakes, investigating water resistance with paper boats, blowing up balloons with home-made carbon dioxide, and different types of rock using chocolate.

Mrs Bartram said: “This week, we have experienced our first ever Science Week, which has proved a huge success.

“The children’s enthusiasm for the subject really shone through and the range of practical experiments provided them with valuable first hand learning experiences. Young scientists are our future.”
