What do Cells, Eyes and the Solar System have in common?

Last term Year 5 and Year 6 were invited to take part in a house competition to support their learning in Science.  Year 5 were asked to make models of the Solar System or the Eye based on their topic, Light. Year 6 had the task of creating a model of a cell as part of their 'Microbe' topic.

Both year groups produced some fantastic models using a range of materials and skills. The standard was even higher this year than before and judging proved extremely tricky. However, Mrs Cook after much deliberation chose some winners and runners up. Congratulations everyone for a superb effort.

Some photos of the models can be seen in the gallery.
