Over the last week, Third Form have been making models of specialised cells for their Science homework. The models were hugely impressive with a great deal of time and effort put in by all pupils. There was a great variety of cells: red blood cells, root hair cells, sperm cells, nerve cells and fat cells to name a few, with all sorts of crazy materials, including parts of Halloween costumes, pieces of wood and some were even edible! Each pupil told the class how they created their cell and a bit about their chosen cell including its function and special features. There could only be one winner! First prize went to William Munro-March. His working model of a nerve cell was unbelievably impressive, and Will demonstrated to the class using a fully functional circuit and flashing lights how an impulse travels to the brain. Second prize went to Pieter Van Roy who very cleverly made a root hair cell which opened up to show the features inside and who was also very knowledgeable about the cell he had made. A huge well done to the winners and to all Third Form students, and a thank you to Mr Darvill for taking some great photos.
