On Friday afternoon 8 of our best scientists in Year 5 were invited to Oasis academy to attend a Federation Science workshop. The event was also attended by children from Redbridge and Fair Isle Schools.
After a safety briefing the children tested different metallic compounds to see what colours they produced.
The second part of the afternoon was a demonstration showing how colours in chemistry could be observed in solutions and in burning liquids.
The children left the event inspired and excited about the idea of continuing their science work.
