The Science Experience
Wednesday 14th November saw a large number of Year 5 and 6 students arrive at The Purbeck School for Science taster lessons.
The students and their parents conducted a number of different chemical reactions, such as neutralisations, exothermic reactions and the ‘squeaky pop’ reaction . Our Science teachers took the chemical reactions one step further and demonstrated the explosive nature of hydrogen on a larger scale.
Students were excited to have the opportunity to do hands on chemical practicals in our specialist laboratories. Parents described it as an excellent opportunity to ease the transition to secondary school.
We are looking forward to welcoming students for the English taster session on Wednesday 12th of December.
