YOUNGSTERS at a city school enjoyed a day of spooky fun for Halloween.

An education organisation, The Early Years and Primary Service, went along to Fatfield Primary School in Washington to hold a Scary Science Session with the pupils.

The group is running Creative Learning Days within schools, which are cross-curricular workshop based on a variety of themes, and the children at Fatfield Primary were thrilled to get involved in some scary fun, which was also educational.

Pupils in the nursery, reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes took part in the fun-filled day of explosive experiments, potions and games.

They gained an exciting insight into the history of Halloween, alongside concocting their own frightening spells and creating ghastly potions and radioactive slime.

Stephen Shanks, from EYPS, said: “We have developed a range of exciting workshops for schools and nurseries centred on topics such as Halloween, Christmas and Chinese New Year.

“They are aimed at encouraging creative learning and are beneficial to all involved.”
