GEOGRAPHY pupils at a Scarborough school have revelled in orange fever during a trip to Holland.

The Year Eight students, complete with orange hooded tops, enjoyed a trip to Amsterdam and visited Anne Frank Museum and took in a river cruise.

They also visited the NEMO Centre where they saw a display on the water cycle and learned about DNA and chain reactions and circuits before taking part in science experiments which included testing for vitamin C.

The trip, organised by Maria Garfield, the school’s head of geography, also took in lessons about the human mind and took part in memory tests, mind problems and sense testers.

The weekend was rounded off by a visit to Burgers Zoo which taught them about the rainforest and desert environments.
