Eye dissection

As part of our Connected Learning topic, Sight and Sound, the children within Year 6 have been studying the parts of the eye and their functions. To help consolidate their learning and to demonstrate the theory, the children dissected a pig's eye. 

They carefully sliced off the fat and muscle connected to the eye (which enables the eye to move).

Then they sliced off the cornea (the transparent layer which protects the iris and pupil).

After that they sliced the sclera (the tough white outer shell) so they could see the retina and the optic nerves.

We have some budding scientists in Year 6!
