Horrible Science author Nick Arnold visits children at Gorleston school
CHILDREN at a Gorleston primary school were treated to grizzly and gruesome tales last week when a top author delivered a workshop.
Nick Arnold, author of the Horrible Science series spent the day at Peterhouse Primary school for messy experiments.
Pupils wore props including a bald head and glasses with eyeballs on a spring to add to the quirky chemistry fun.
Mr Arnold said: “The children were very appreciative.
“The school was fantastic – I was there to bring the books to life.
