October 2017 Newsletter Released
A group of 20 year 4 and 5 students from Richard Taylor Primary school had the opportunity to experience science lessons in a secondary school environment. As part of a link scheme with local primary schools the students took part in 3 science lessons on Tuesdays after normal school hours. Using the new science labs at Harrogate High school they were able to engage with our experienced science teachers and a former pupil of the primary school Katie Wilkinson in a number of projects. They constructed working models of lighthouses, built to specifications using limited resources; investigated the metals used to colour fireworks by flame testing for different colours; and learnt how to mix acids and alkalis with universal indicator in order to produce a neutral green solution. They also got to see some fascinating science demonstrations including a teacher setting fire to methane bubbles from their hand! The students and staff from Richard Taylor really enjoyed the events and were enthusiastic to return each week.< Back to all news stories
