SCIENCE week at Henham and Ugley Primary School brought the wow factor into the classroom as children got a buzz from hands on learning.
"The whole week was really engaging for all the pupils and I'm sure they learnt a lot about science and nature as well as having fun," said teacher Suzie Jarrett.
As part of the week of activities, on Friday a new wildlife area was opened at the school on School Lane, Henham. Youngsters took part in pond dipping and identified what they found.
Afterwards parents and children were invited to go on a science trail around the school, exploring a magnetic zone, a health zone and an electricity zone among others.
