Science Transition Day

PetmainThe Academy welcomed 130 Year 6 students in for a Science Transition Day on Wednesday. Students from Portobello, Kibblesworth, Oakfield, Barley Mow and Birtley East were joined by Jay from Jay’s Animal Encounters to learn how animals are adapted to their environment.
They first met Alice, Darwin and Sydney the Bearded Dragons from Australia. Jay taught them how they are excellent climbers and are able to use their tails to keep balanced when on branches high up in the trees, or on students heads!
Belinda the Blue Tongued Skink was a very friendly lizard that liked giving the students a kiss on the nose. The students were able to explain to Jay what advantage Belinda has for having a blue tongue when warning of possible predators.
