Mrs Horrigan’s Compost Heap

There were squeals of fright and delight in the Science labs when Year 7 explored the creatures that live in Mrs Horrigan’s compost heap.  Students became experts at exposing the critters and deftly placing them in dishes to study them closer with magnifying glasses.  There were also frantic scrambles to catch those escapees who made it to the floor.

This week we also got up close and personal with earthworms.  This all ties in with the Biology unit this term looking at Habitats and Interactions.
