Over the past two weeks, Year 2 have enjoyed some very exciting chemistry lessons from Mrs Hillman, head of chemistry at the senior school. Mrs Hillman very kindly fulfilled the children’s requests for ‘potions and explosions’! She showed them how dry ice is made and they learnt that in this instance carbon turns from a solid straight to a gas and the gas is heavier than air. Mrs Hillman demonstrated testing for PH levels and kindly left some test tube racks in the classroom displaying the full range. The children were delighted, evidenced by their gasps and cheers and expressions on their faces. A big thank you to Mrs Hillman and Jo for really inspiring the next generation of scientists!
