Pupils mix fun with science with great results
CHILDREN at Portishead Primary School got their lab coats on as they took part in a variety of experiments as part of science week.
All 450 pupils at the school took part in the activities, which also included a visit by a special Explorer Dome, which provided a lively, interactive, hands-on science show.
Some of the experiments included the children using dried spaghetti to make structures and making things fly using bottle tops.
The school also hosted an American-style science fair.

Each child made their own model at home and brought it in to exhibit in the hall.
Members of the community were invited in to the school to see some of the exciting exhibits.
Melanie Pinney, the school's science co-ordinator, organised the week's activities to make science exciting and to increase the children's understanding of the subject.
She said: "I am hoping the week gave the children some exciting learning of science through fun and experimentation.
"The week culminated in a whole school non-uniform day where we all came in dressed as mad or famous scientists."
Jimmy Butters, key stage two co-ordinator, added: "All of the children seemed to really enjoy the week.
"It was all about raising the profile of science and making the children see it's not a boring, dry subject but is actually really fun.
"We all had a good time."
