Daring students had the chance to hold one of the world’s largest snakes as part of National Science and Engineering week.
More than 500 primary school pupils got up close and personal to a boa constrictor snake and a giant tarantula at Royal Liberty School in Upper Brentwood Road, Romford recently.
Assistant headteacher, Lisa Stuchfield said: “We have been running special activities for science week for several years, but this was the largest event ever.
“It is a great opportunity for our school to spread the excitement of science onto the next generation.”
The theme of this year’s event was discovery and invention and students had fun taking part in chemistry experiments.
