Appliance of science for pupils at Dalkeith school.


The appliance of science was in full force at Dalkeith’s King’s Park Primary School recently, when children participated in a series of interactive activities as part of Science Week.

Nursery and P1 focused on floating and sinking, static electricity and bouncing balls, while youngsters in P2-4 experimented with ‘forces’ such as magnetism. They also explored optical illusions and made a lava lamp.

P6 and P7 pupils enjoyed a visit from the Bye Bye Biodiversity workshop at Edinburgh University. They learned about genes and biodiversity and also took part in a drama which helped them to discover how climate change affects biodiversity.

Children also enjoyed an action-packed session involving drama and storytelling.
