S3 Standard Grade Biology pupils have recently been learning about cells as part of their studies. Class teachers Miss Macauley and Mrs Binnie and visiting teacher, Mr Scott, set the pupils a challenge of demonstrating what they know about cells by making a model of an animal or plant cell for homework.
The pupils concerned are a creative bunch but they ex-celled (see what we did there) in showing off their knowledge and demonstrating their creativity too. House points were up for grabs in this particular activity and there was more than just pride at stake.
Some of the cell models can be seen below…
In 1st Place, winning points for GRANGE, was CIARA HARVIE
In 2nd place, also winning points for GRANGE was LAURA O’BRIEN
In 3rd place, shy and retiring Amy from Seton was reluctant to appear on camera but she still secured house points for the reds.
Here are some of the class efforts – we are certain everyone will enjoy their creativity. We should point out also that the winners were selected by the class through a secret ballot – with each pupil peer reviewing the models against success criteria agreed before the task was set.
