The boys were lucky to have the expertise of a parent who kindly came in to give a presentation on the brain. Mrs Anni Martin had the boys’ level of excitement going through the roof when she presented them with REAL LAMB BRAINS!!! The boys looked official in their white lab coats and were able to touch and identify the parts of the brain and compare them to what they know about human brains. They have now increased their enthusiasm and are even more eager to conduct research on the brain. The boys then discussed the need for a skull to protect their brain and further agreed on the importance of wearing a helmet. Following from this discussion, they were given the opportunity to create a helmet in order to protect their brain. Using a water balloon as their ‘brain’ and a plastic cup as their ‘helmet’, they set off throughout the school to find the tallest balcony, and threw their brains onto the ground! There were several casualties who needed the ambulance, a number who needed to replace their helmet and a lucky few who survived the whole ordeal. Their excitement could not be contained and their interest soon spread through to the Senior School staff who stopped to see what all the excitement was about. The morning could not have been complete without a taste of brains! A delicious mouthful from a jelly mould of the brain gave a lasting impression of the morning. It was an extremely enjoyable morning and it was great to see the boys having fun whilst also learning. A BIG thank you to Mrs Anni Martin, who engaged the boys in a very memorable lesson!
