Science Week part 2

This morning, Y6 had a visit from Dr. Evans and his team from Sheffield University. We learned about how fruit flies and zebra fish are used to find out how organs and cells work in the human body. This research can then be used to help scientists to understand how humans recover from infections and injuries.

The children looked at the flies and fish. We ended by playing fly and fish mutant bingo!

Thank you very much to our visitors. The children really enjoyed the visit and asked lots of interesting questions.
