To coincide with science week at Oakfield Junior School, a group of year 6 students joined us at Lord Lawson to participate in a chemistry lesson. The group confidently worked in groups of 2 or 3 to produce hydrogen. The fact that most of them had already seen hydrogen rockets at the year 6 open evening last October in no way diminished their enthusiasm, if anything the anticipation of the bottles launching across room heightened their excitement.
For those who join us in September, I hope the opportunity to spend more time with has helped ease their transition. Those who will be attending other schools, will have gained transferable skills regarding handling chemicals and safely working in a laboratory.
We were delighted to be able to enhance the science experiences already offered at Oakfield Junior School during the week.
