St Mary’s Welcomes Prep & Primary Schools

Broad Chalke Science Workshop

As part of our Primary School Partnership programme, Year 5 students from Broad Chalke School enjoyed one of our science workshops last Friday, investigating elements by observing how they react, noting their state (solid, liquid or gas), colour or other physical property. They particularly enjoyed using bunsens to heat elements to produce different coloured flames, and observing a sample of mercury. They joined us for lunch and went back to school with their lab reports, certificates and goody bags!

Sandroyd Art Workshop

In the first of a programme of art workshops with prep schools, Year 6 pupils from Sandroyd visited St Mary’s last week. They explored the use of card animation and created a robot, using tools which they had not used before such as heating tools, to add nuts and bolts and the cold glue gun. They sprayed and tarnished their robots with goldfinger lustre and created their own individual personalities.
