7SC6 have recently learnt about the structure of cells. The students each made an animal or plant cell model using sweets and jelly. The first task was to decide which sweet or jelly they could use to represent the different parts of their cell model. They each had to explain why they had made their selections in a peer discussion. They then made their cell models and labelled them, using labels that they had typed and printed themselves without the use of their books. These are now displayed on the wall in their Science room as a celebration of their efforts and high standard of work. Other Year 7 Science classes have also been extremely creative in designing and making cell models for homework. These range from cell cakes, decorated biscuits, cardboard models and many more ideas. Every year there is always something new! This is one of this year group’s favourite tasks and it is a great way to help them learn about the cell, which is an important basic concept of Biology and links to so many other topics. Plus they get to eat them after too!
