Science Sessions enthuse visiting Primary School Pupils

On Tuesday 10th March, pupils from Priestley Primary School were treated to a fantastic afternoon of Chemistry here at St Mary's Calne.

The Year 5 pupils gained their Bunsen Burner licences and learnt about the colours of fireworks, and the Year 6 pupils enjoyed exploring acids, alkalis and indicators. The sessions ended with demonstrations about flammable gases and the infamous 'screaming jelly baby' experiment. A very good time was had by all!
