King Edward Primary School, in North Shields, hosted its annual Science Fair to celebrate National Science Week and showcase its children’s learning in science.

Science ambassadors from Nursery to Year 6 carried out live experiments for members of the local community.

Year 4 teacher and school STEM Leader Hannah Osueke, who has been shortlisted for a national Primary Science Teacher Award 2017/18, said: “It was great to see so many members of the community attend our science fair.

“It’s a great opportunity for our children to share their learning in science confidently. This really helps the children develop their ability to explain scientific concepts to an audience.

“We would like to thank First Class Supply for sponsoring our school. The agency kindly donated £250 for science resources.”
