Shoreham primary school children take part in Harry Potter-themed science day at Goring high school

Year five students from a Shoreham primary visited a Goring high school for a Harry Potter-themed science day.

The pupils from St Peter’s Catholic Primary School, in Sullington Way, visited St Oscar Romero Catholic School, and used a Bunsen burner for the first time during their trip.

One of the experiments that the children saw was a methane bubble solution that, when exposed to a flame, created a large amount of fire, which one of the pupils had to ‘cast a spell’ to make it work.

A spokesperson for St Peter’s said the aim of the lesson was for the children to see the different colours that different metal solutions burn to find out a mystery word as part of the challenge of the day.
