Excitement rippled through the classes of Kirkby Malham Primary as acclaimed primary science author, Peter Riley, graced the school with his presence, ready to kindle the flame of curiosity in young minds through his captivating science presentations and workshops.

With his expertise and enthusiasm, Mr Riley's visit promised to offer the children an unforgettable glimpse into the wonders of science.  From the outset, Mr Riley's ability to demystify complex scientific concepts and make them accessible to young learners was evident. Through interactive demonstrations, vivid illustrations, and relatable examples, he transported the children on an exhilarating journey through the marvels of our Planet Earth and our natural world.

A highlight of Mr Riley's visit was the series of interactive workshops he conducted, where students eagerly rolled up their sleeves and delved into the world of scientific experimentation.
