Oxfords Royal Microscope Society

Through an initiative of the Oxfords Royal Microscope society our school took part in getting to understand a specialist area of interest in science ‘ microscopy ‘, The school had successfully applied to take part and had received a case of microscopes and many resources and samples for study for our budding scientists here at Buttercup!

Children in KS1 used the equipments to look into plant cells and were fascinated by the tiny organisms that they saw, there was a ‘wow!’ factor that had taken place in class that could not been achieved from a text book. We have decided to keep the equipments with us for the whole term and other year groups will go on to use it to discover how small things can really become interesting when looked into closely!

Watch out we will be planning on exciting Microscopy after school clubs soon!
