Family Fun with Colours, Creatures and Cameras
King’s were delighted to welcome thirty-five year 5 and year 6 primary pupils with their parents from nine different primary schools to a Family Science Day. The families took part in a carousel of three science activities run by King’s science specialists and helped by King’s volunteers. The Lord Mayor and the Lady Mayoress, Councillor Michael Northey from KCC and Frances Judd QC, a King’s School governor, also joined for the day.
Over the three science sessions, families made pinhole cameras, used Bunsen burners and looked at tiny creatures through microscopes. After each family had completed all the sessions they headed up to King’s main dining hall where the catering team had prepared an amazing lunch. This was followed by speeches and a presentation of certificates to the children by the Lord Mayor.
It was a fun day enjoyed by all those who attended and who volunteered their time. The feedback was wonderful with 100% of attendees saying that they would recommend the day to a friend. One parent said, “It was great to have some quality father and son time with some great science thrown in. What more could you ask for?”
King’s are looking forward to planning next year’s Family Science Day and welcoming many more families into the King’s School laboratories.
