A special science week has been enjoyed by children at a Norfolk infant school who took part in a series of hands-on activities.
Pupils at Stalham Infant School grew microbes that live in soil for observation under microscopes with the help of John Innes Centre scientist Lucy Foulston.
The children conducted experiments to see how slope angles and different road surfaces affected the speed of toy cars, learned about the planets in our solar system and experimented modelling the impact of meteorites on a planet's surface - measuring and recording crater sizes.
There was also a competition to design and construct the strongest bag choosing from a selection of different materials.

Teacher and organiser of the school science week Briony Lea said: 'We showed the children that science is fun - it was a great hands-on experience. The children were introduced to scientific experiments, measuring, recording, comparing results to establish facts.'
