Eyeball Dissections for Budding BUDS Scientists!
Scientific investigations were taken to another level last Saturday at our BUDS Year 5 Community Programme!
At the fifth session of the 2023 programme, Year 5 pupils from Stanhope Primary School, St Gregory’s School, Montpelier School, Selborne Primary School, North Ealing Primary School and Hobbayne School were all challenged to dissect sheep eyeballs by our Head of Science, Ms Brown! This was the second of two sessions on ‘Gory Eyes’ where they learned how our eyes work. Pupils discovered how the eye works and had to find out if sheep eyeballs are the same as human ones!
In public speaking, the students wrote and delivered speeches about what they would do as monarch for the day. With ideas ranging from free ice cream to free housing, there are some brilliant future leaders within the group!
Meanwhile in Creative Thinking, the pupils have made fantastic progress on their streetscapes, where they are working with Art teacher Miss Cagnino in our Art Studio.
BUDS is our Saturday enrichment programme working with primary schools in Ealing. The BUDS programme is aimed at Building Understanding, Developing Skills in Gifted and Talented Year 5 pupils from local primary schools. With a focus on Science, English, Maths and Creative Thinking, pupils will learn the soft skills required to be able to think creatively, solve problems, and express their own ideas.
Looking forward to the final two BUDS sessions in June – we can’t wait to find out what you discover next!
