Zoolab

lewellyn150On the 28th of Jan­u­ary year 8 stu­dents took part in a work­shop with Emma from Zoolab. Zoolab over many years, has suc­cess­fully deliv­ered imag­i­na­tive ani­mal han­dling work­shops to chil­dren all across the UK .

The work­shop we attended taught us about the clas­si­fi­ca­tion of dif­fer­ent types of ani­mals. There were hands on expe­ri­ences with snails, cock­roaches and millipede.

The work­shop also helped some of the stu­dents to over­come their fears and pho­bias of snakes and spiders.

Our sci­ence teacher Miss Rebera really wanted us to gain two things from Zoolab, “I wanted you all to realise that sci­ence is some­thing that you encounter and use every day by pro­vid­ing you all with infor­ma­tion about exactly how sci­en­tists group. I also wanted to pro­vide you all with hands on expe­ri­ence of ani­mal clas­si­fi­ca­tion and ulti­mately have fun doing science!”
