As part of British science week, youngsters at Stalham Academy took part in a range of simple yet exciting experiments that they can share with their parents at home.

Each event was photographed and added to the school’s Twitter feed.

Teacher Rebecca Lamb, who organised the week, said: “I’m very happy and excited by the engagement of the children, the parents and the community. “Science is an exceptionally important subject that can open doors for our children and we see these kinds of opportunities as ways to highlight what can be achieved in the future through science.”

The school rounded off the week with a visit from MAD Science, which gave the children an interactive opportunity to see and take part in a range of exciting experiments led by Professor DNA. Class learning also allowed for a focus on women in science.
