Pupils learned about the more unsavoury aspects of the human body at a science workshop run by a Halifax-based museum team.
Youngsters at New Pasture Lane School were treated to a day of delightfully disgusting workshops run by a team from the Eureka Science Museum.
Trudi Bowling, New Pasture Lane’s science coordinator, said: “We explored the ickier, but the very important, side of the human body, such as sick, poo, saliva and blood.
“The students really had a lot of fun and the actually learned a lot. It helped them with the science curriculum, with issues including healthy eating and the older children were looking at microorganisms.
All the youngsters at the school took part in the workshops and got to get hands on with learning about bodily functions.
“They had to mix up sick - not real sick, obviously, and discovered how our bodies make gas and how it needs to escape by whatever route,” said Trudi.
She added: “I think they have gone away learning and also remembering a lot of things. There was a lot of laughter going on as well as groans.”
