IT was a change from their usual lessons this week.

Archie Lawfull and his classmates from St Nicholas School in Marston were invited to Oxford High School to take part in science experiments.

The youngsters were given lessons in science, technology, engineering and maths by pupils from the high school in Belbroughton Road.

The St Nicholas’ Primary School pupil, 10, said: “It was really fun and we did a bunch of science experiments.

“We had sand, salt and iron filings and we had to separate them.

“We were given a magnet for the iron fillings and given water in a Bunsen burner and get out the salt.

“I think science is one of my favourite subjects.”
