We created timelines which reviewed all the significant periods and events studied since the beginning of Primary School, building a picture of the major events that shaped human evolution up to the Baroque period, and studied some of the most influential pieces of writing from the time.
Under the microscopes, we examined a number of prepared slides, as well as creatures found around us - from a rat’s tail to a bumblebee and a centipede. Students wrote inspired poetry to express their wonder at this close up view of the natural world.
The Humble Fly
by Samadhi Bloor
The glistening and swirling of the blue,
Rests upon its wings, so perfect and true,
The complex patterns of the eye,
Might make you want to cry,
If you knew what I told you,
Was a creature admired by few,
It's not a lion nor it's cry,
But the simple, humble fly.
