The pupils and students have had a wonderful week celebrating Biology Week. The pupils began their celebrations with ‘Sweet DNA’ where the pupils and students made DNA models from sweets… delicious!
Then later in the week was ‘Choosey Maggots’ where the pupils and students investigated ‘Do maggots see colour?’, ‘Do maggots move faster on dark or light surfaces?’ and ‘Do maggots prefer dark or light spaces?’.
For our final celebrations the pupils and students got stuck into the ‘Bird Beak Challenge’ where they recreated Darwin’s observations of finches’ beaks and their diversity in beak form and function. The goal of their investigations was to discover why birds have evolved to have different shaped beaks for their food.
It was lovely seeing everyone enjoying the activities and getting involved from Year 6 to Sixth Form!
