Our oldest Juniors found out more about fish when they took part in their first dissection.

As well as learning which tools and skills are needed to perform the investigation, the classmates also discovered where the fish lived, how it found food and how it protected itself from predators – all before the first incision had been made!

Ten-year-old Charlie said: “I wasn’t keen to join in at first but it was fascinating to see the fish’s scales and gills and we learned so much from just looking.”

The class went on to observe Science teacher, Mrs Piszczek’s expert dissection and were surprised to learn that the aquatic cold-blooded creature has many organs similar to a human.
