Normandy visit

Today we visited Normandy Primary School to deliver a Science workshop on Micro-organisms. Approximately 80 pupils that make up the three Year 5 classes had the chance to take part in the workshop. They learnt about bacteria, fungi and viruses, looked at insect and plant slides through a pocket microscope and also made their own plant slide using red onion. They were amazed at how much detail could be seen using the small pocket microscopes, but were even more awed at what could be viewed when they looked at slides containing things such as bees wings and frogs blood through the larger microscopes that they would use in a secondary school environment. The pupils were all very enthusiastic about what they had learnt; hopefully we have inspired some budding scientists.
