Visit to The Natural History Museum

Yesterday Webber students visited the Natural History Museum in Tring which houses six galleries on four levels. The day was very successful, Biology students were able to observe the vast collection of stuffed, preserved mammals, fish, reptiles, birds and invertebrates. They learnt the scientific names (binomials), observed and studied animal features up close and read about the geographical home locations and the types of habitat in the different environments.
The galleries also provided an excellent opportunity for Webber students to be inspired and practise their artistic skills. The specimens were an excellent chance to study colour, pattern, texture and shape.

Webber Wears Jeans for Genes

Students and staff swapped their smart suits, kilts and school trousers for jeans today.
The children raised £220 for the Jeans for Genes charity which funds a range of initiatives that improve the quality of life for families and children affected by genetic disorders to fund extra care and support to transform children's lives.
Headmistress, Mrs Marsden said ' I am very proud of our caring School community. Our 3 to 18 year olds care passionately about making a positive contribution to our local and global community. Organizing this fundraising event is just one of the many ways that they demonstrate their Global Citizenship.'
