From edible slime to firecrackers: Orford Primary celebrates National Science Week
Orford Primary School celebrated National Science week with an explosive science fair on March 14.
Years 5 and 6 showcased homemade exhibitions from lava lamps, fire crackers, bottle flipping, edible slime and a tennis ball gun.
The winner was Anskar, Year 6, with his bottle flipping for his extensive tests using different bottles and water volumes.
Emily Williams won second place with her lava lamp, and Children’s Choice went to Charlie Winter with his tennis ball gun.
All classes and the school governors had the chance to take part in the activities, watch demonstrations and help the staff decide on the winning exhibits.
