Lots of wow and lots of great science vocabulary used which we will pick up and remind the children about. Thanks for visiting us Tim!’ Kulvinder Kaur Johal ‘Assistant Headteacher

The pupils’ views: Benitte said ' I ve learnt that science is really fun and waiting to see what was going to happen was exciting.. It made me excited to think about secondary school, where I will learn more'. Raphael said 'It was exciting and special. I could take this experience and use it in the future.

The 60 Year 5 & 6 students then took part in two hands-on Workshops with postgraduate chemists Lina Mohammed & Oscar Hernandez.

This (assembly) focussed on liquids and gases and got the whole school enthused about science and the other activities planned for the day. ‘Wow, what a great assembly. It was pitched at the correct level to engage Reception children all the way through to year 6. Alison was amazing’. Class teacher.

The children loved being 'proper' scientists and it was great to give them a chance to work with a range of chemicals which is something that primary schools find it very hard to access. Each station allowed them to work through the process of investigating and the children were thoroughly enthused after the session. Year 5 teacher (workshop)

'Thank you so much to a great team that delivered amazing opportunities for all the children. We look forward to inviting you back to The Minster Primary School in the future.’ Teacher Linsey Jones

Many thanks for your fantastic visit to Grafton Primary School. Your impressive assembly was the highlight of our schools science week. All of the staff that attended have since commented on the additional subject knowledge that they gained from the session. Our children were engaged and in awe of you and returned to class buzzing with questions about science and how things work. It is an important part of all our jobs as science leads to instil in our children a love for science. Your sessions did just this as well as encouraged our children's natural curiosity about the world around them. Finally it was amazing for our children to see a "real life" scientist at work doing experiments up close.’ Alice Carroll, Science Co-ordinator.

The visit was inspirational to the children. There has been a lot of talk since the assembly about gases in the air and all the classes did a follow up session afterwards. Some classes wrote letters about what they discovered, others made posters and others made poems. All the teachers who attended the assembly have given their praise to the way it was presented to the children. It was very engaging and brought to life ‘gases’ in a fin and interactive way.’ Organising teacher.

The explosions were phenomenal! I also learnt that if you put an inflated balloon into liquid nitrogen, it will shrink and then return to its original size when it warms up’. Year 5 pupil.

Bristol ChemLabS again worked with PSTT College member Peter Sainsbury in the delivery of an event sponsored by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT).

24 January: Elmhurst Junior School, Street

There are some photographs from the workshops on the school's website:  The students also sent us some drawings inspired by the workshops. Elmhusrt Junior School

Afterwards their teacher said "The year 5 children had a great day on Tuesday working with Alison, Maddie, Eloise and Claudio from the Chem Lab based at Bristol University. All the children became scientists for the day, dressed in lab coats, safety goggles and gloves. They took part in three chemistry-based experiments linked to our science topic about reversible and irreversible changes. These activities involved making slime, investigating reversible colour changes in solutions and dissolving metals. They all loved the reaction when hydrogen and fire were combined! We were really impressed with the level of scientific vocabulary used by the children and the way they worked together, both enthusiastically and sensibly."

24 January: PSTT Science Assemblies, English Martyrs Catholic Primary School, Sparkhill, Birmingham, W.Midlands

Tim Harrison was again working with a PSTT cluster of schools including this one in the south of Birmingham. He delivered the science demonstration assembly ‘Gases in the Air’ during the afternoon to 270 pupils in Years 2 to 6 and 9 teachers.

Firstly, a huge thank you for honouring us with your visit!...The children's responses have been overwhelmingly positive …… The show was definitely inspiring for the children: they can see Science as something very exciting and hopefully very achievable. I loved the way you talked about the various careers that can stem from taking Science as an academic subject as this gives it a purpose and places it in the real world.’ Organising teacher

Bristol ChemLabS worked with PSTT cluster member Fatimah Kermalli in an event sponsored by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT).
