Science Research Lesson

One of our ex pupils who now works in Science Research came into school to show Year 5 pupils how to use a microscope.

They looked at some old slides, including two from The Challenger Expedition 1872-1876.  The children used coordinates to find where "Challenger" sailed in the ocean towards Antarctica but not within sight of it.  The report was described as "the greatest advance in the knowledge of our planet since the celebrated discoveries of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries".

They also looked at a slide of Queen Victoria's family.
