Youngsters enjoyed taking part in science-related investigations last week.
Wraxall Primary School, in Bristol Road, conducted their own scientific experiments as part of science week.
They also heard from guest speakers on a range of scientific topics, got creative in an explorer dome and even had a visit from a skeleton, loaned from Carey’s Stores in Portishead.
Headteacher Amy Townsend said: “It was brilliant to see the enthusiasm of the children and to hear the depth of their conversations when talking about the science activities they had taken part in.
“It was a truly memorable week, which culminated in the school competing in the Science Challenge South West, which saw the children designing and testing seagulls which could collect fish rather than plastic waste in the sea.”
