CHILDREN were invited to carry out some advanced science experiments at the Oratory School in Woodcote.

The 27 children, from Woodcote, Checkendon, Whitchurch, Stoke Row and Caversham primaries, were taking part in the independent secondary’s Gifted and Talented workshop. They learned how to extract pigment from chlorophyll using a process called chromatography.

They also measured sound waves from different musical instruments to see how each one made a unique sound. At the end of the session, the youngsters were awarded certificates and given tea and cakes.

David Forster, Oratory’s director of studies, said: “Judging by the responses of the children, a great afternoon was had by all.”
