A New Way of Working 21/09/20
There are thousands of different types of cells found in millions of different species of life on Earth. These range from tiny bacteria that live on us and around us, to cells in birds that can fly over the Big Ben. Cells can be put into two groups; prokaryotic cells which are found in prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria, and eukaryotic cells which are found in eukaryotic organisms such as plants and animals. Upon their return to college, students in Year 10 have been developing their understanding of cells in Biology. Students regularly engage in practical lessons in which they have had the opportunity to use subject specific equipment to investigate the world around them. Year 10 students were given the opportunity to use the light microscope to view plant (onion) cells. This picture shows a student viewing onion cells under the highest magnification lens whilst following government guidelines during lesson.
