Year 12 Biologists

Year 12 Biologists 

Year 12 Biologists have settled into the challenges of studying for their A level.

Pictured are our year 12s carrying out a required practical assessment where they were tasked with dissecting a chicken wing. Chicken wings are useful to study as all vertebrate limbs are fairly similar and have homologous structures as we all evolved from a common ancestor. Therefore studying the chicken wing helps us to understand the structures present in our own arms including muscles, bones, tendons and how the synovial joints function. Well done to all!
