Able and talented middle school pupils from across Bury St Edmunds scaled new heights when they attempted to solve a gigantic mystery - ‘could King Kong really have existed?’.

About 70 Year 7 children descended on County Upper School for the fun filled science activity to unravel the legend of the Eighth Wonder of the World.

They conducted various experiments looking into bone length, mass and metabolism by multiplying the measurements of a gorilla by 10. The pupils presented their findings on posters.

Head Vicky Neale said: “They were really working well with each other . It was extending their thinking skills.”
