As part of science week, Year 7 had the pleasure of a visit from Dr Michelle Barrows, Head of Veterinary Services at Bristol Zoo. She spoke about the complexities of looking after zoo animals, from performing surgery on a lion to taking blood from a frog. The children were fascinated by the samples; gorilla hair, tumours and tranquilizer darts. She left the children awestruck with her stories and has no doubt inspired future generations of scientists!
We have been celebrating science week every day with pupils taking part in a series of lunchtime activities. Hal Farnie successfully managed to turn ‘red wine into water’ and the pupils were more than happy to set fire to Mr Darvill!
