Pre-school children had the chance to find out about the role of a science teacher as part of a special careers week. 18 youngsters, aged just three and four from Bright Futures Nursery in Rawtenstall visited neighbouring Alder Grange School, where they got to try out a number of experiments first hand.
During the event they were shown a flame test to demonstrate how fireworks get their different colour. Alder Grange pupils also demonstrated the effects of static electricity by using a Van der Graaf generator, which made their hair stand on end.
Pupils at a Alder Grange school gathered for a moving Remembrance Day assembly – to mark the 100 year since the end of the Battle of the Somme. Parents, teachers, veterans in the community and local cadets also attended the service at Alder Grange School, which included live performances of The Green Fields of France and Dulce et Decorum est, plus video presentations created and edited by pupils.
