SIMPLE household ingredients have been used to open the eyes of Easter Ross primary pupils to the wonders of science.

It's part of an initiative by Tain royal Academy to introduce aspects of science to younger pupils in the secondary school's catchment area.

The latest to be visited by the science department was Knockbreck Primary.

Staff delivered a lesson on acids and alkalis as an introduction to secondary science.

The children made red cabbage indicator which changed colour when vinegar and baking soda were added.

The school said this lesson will be delivered to the other local primaries in the coming weeks.
