Making slime in science

Year 10 have been learning about polymers and their structure. As part of the lesson, our students made slime which they said was disgusting!  The photos show Jordan looking disgusted and for those of you interested in the science a diagram showing what is happening.  The students were able to explain a polymer is and describe their structure (including what was happening when the slime was made).  I  hope you are impressed with their science knowledge and if your child is in year 10 why not ask them about their lesson!  Challenging lessons and high (but realistic) aspirations are part of our vision of “Building brighter futures” for all our learners.
