He was one of dozens of youngsters at the school who put themselves forward to be STEM leaders.

Teacher Wendy said: "It was great to see the children having fun exploring science. We wanted to make it fun and set challenges for everyone.

"One of the reasons for organising the event was to engage with parents and get them back in through the doors after Covid.

"Our STEM leaders have been amazing and set some great tasks encouraging everyone to work together.
