On Wednesday, 22nd June year 6 visited the University of Reading London Road campus to take part in a day organised by LASAR( Learning about science and religion) https://blogs.reading.ac.uk/lasar/

We took part in sessions including:  illusions and  how brains can be tricked;  why we are unique and we debated if we should ‘recreate dinosaurs from DNA – after making DNA helices from sweets and what miracles are and can they be explained by science?
