A science club for primary school pupils got off to an explosive start for these youngsters.

Year 5 pupils from schools across the town went along to the science labs at Walton Girls’ High School and Sixth Form for the first meeting of the Bubbles and Bangs Club.

The budding young scientists cooked up their own ‘bath bombs’ at the first meeting, and can look forward to making rockets and crystals at future sessions in a five-week series.

Lynn Cameron, primary liaison officer at Walton said: “The aim of the programme is to give pupils the opportunity to further their knowledge of science in a practical and fun way in an actual laboratory.”

Walton’s science teacher Vanessa Wilson-Wood, who runs Bubbles and Bangs with five Year 7 Walton science ambassadors said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome primary pupils to Walton, as they are always keen to do some practical science in a laboratory.

“Science is such an enjoyable subject and having keen young minds to work with is adelight.”

Primary pupils taking part came from The National Junior School, Huntingtower Primary, Gonerby Hill Foot, Great Ponton, Denton and South Witham.

Walton is also planning to welcome primary school pupils into the academy for a Spanish club on Thursdays at 4pm.
