Carrying out science experiments at Eaton Square Senior School has been challenging this term. With the move away from laboratories, teachers are having to become more inventive and imaginative with the way we are teaching some challenging concepts.
In the backdrop of a lovely Maths classroom, Year 10 engaged in a very hands on experience of dissecting lamb kidneys as part of GCSE Biology. While some were initially squeamish, others were raring to go, eager to understand how the kidneys work to filter our blood. All pupils worked exceptionally well to produce some detailed dissections where they were able to identify renal arteries, the ureter and medulla. The sense of enthusiasm and enjoyment was palpable in the room, something teachers wish to see in all lessons!
