Physics Roadshow

On Friday 3rd February, we welcomed a class of Year 5 children from a local primary school as part of an Enrichment Day jointly hosted with our neighbouring school, KES. The day was designed to give the children an idea of what secondary school is like, and the boys and girls enjoyed an hour of exciting science demonstrations in the Physics Roadshow, which was organised by Physics teacher Miss Platt and her A-level physicists. The session included giant bubbles, LED light tricks, bunsen burners, smoke rings and lots of liquid nitrogen, and the A-level Physics students explained the science behind their demonstrations. At the end of the day, the children went back home enthused and inspired! The Year 5 teacher who accompanied the class said this about the day: I’d like to say a massive thank you from all the Year 5 students. They thoroughly enjoyed all the lessons that they took part in and they all thought the trebuchet and musket firing session were particularly memorable. The sixth form girls put on a brilliant Science lesson and they were very professional in their delivery.”
