PROPELLING ‘mice’ out of empty drinks bottles and playing with balloons to discover how a hovercraft works... it was just a science lesson in progress at Southview Primary School in Crowland.

Except this was no ordinary lesson, as teachers from the the Sir John Gleed School were delivering the lesson as part of an outreach scheme in which staff from the secondary school give lessons in both science and maths to the primary pupils.

Acting head teacher Louise Luter said: “It’s part of the transition process but it’s also part of making links between primary and secondary school.

“It was all about exploring how forces work and they had a fantastic time, very practical and hands-on.”
