The event involved all 540 children, aged four to 11, and included interactive activities to inform, educate and entertain.
National Science Week is a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths and features various events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
Students learnt about careers in science through assemblies and hands-on practical investigations.
It is hoped the week will help students to develop their critical-thinking, team-working and problem-solving skills through activities designed to inspire a future generation of scientists.
Sessions were led by class teachers, including the school’s science coordinator Rachel Wellington, who organised the event.
She said:  “The students really engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the practical experiments they participated in.
“It is important that we engage students with science at an early age to hopefully inspire and excite them to study science further in their educational careers.”
