Suzanne Cory Experience

On Friday the 18th of August the year 6 students had an amazing experience visiting Suzanne Cory High School. They were lucky enough to participate in a number of hands on science lessons. The visit also doubled as a transition day to give the year 6 students some insight to what it will be like at Secondary School. They conducted various experiments and further developed their science knowledge with support from the teachers and students at Suzanne Cory.

The activities included;

  • Methane bubbles
  • Rainbow fizz flame test
  • Red cabbage indicator
  • Dry ice
  • Motors

The biggest ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ definitely came from the methane bubbles session!
