Science 1
Yeah, so this is isn’t really a proper Science book at all. Just the History book turned upside down and back to front. Clearly, Mr Geraghty was budget-conscious and, knowing we wouldn’t really be doing that many science experiments over the course of our several years there, realised we’d waste fewer precious exercise books if we doubled them up to cover more than one subject. The fact that there are only four science experiments written up in the back of this book means either of two things: 1. Mr Geraghty was right, because we only ever did four experiments in my entire two and a half years at the school, so to start a new book would have been an unconscionable waste of paper 2. Mr Geraghty was wrong, because we did a whole load of other experiments which wasted some other school paper instead Since I kept just about all the books I ever wrote at Fairburn School, I’m inclined to believe the former. This not actually being a real separate book, it doesn’t have a real cover. Instead, we’re treated to several early examples of me trying to do joined up writing. The ones in pencil at the bottom (upside down) are attempts at writing my own name. The ones in pen at the top are other boys in my class. I hadn’t quite worked out at this point how to join up the letters but still make them look like separate letters, so I’ll count this as a failure. But a bold one. We all have to start somewhere. As for the contents? Well, there are only four experiments so there’s not much to say. Please read on to find out more…
