On Wednesday 6th February Year 6 went to St Martin in The Field Secondary school and experienced a science workshop run by Miss Pryce.
During the afternoon, they got to handle some technical equipment, especially microscopes – learning all about the parts of a microscope and each part’s function. Click here if you are interested in finding out more about microscopes!
We used the very thin membrane of an onion to investigate cells and we noted the nucleus and the shapes of all of the cells, using magnification of x40 then x100. It was a fun and informative session!
