Science

Year 6 have been taking part in a longitudinal study of microorganisms. They have been looking to see what microorganisms grow on bread in different conditions. The pupils had to check up on their bread, draw a diagram in their books of their findings and predict what may continue to happen for next week. They discussed how to treat the experiment with care, therefore ensuring that the results were valid. The lesson ended by discussing and sorting whether the effects of different microorganisms were positive or negative eg mould, chicken pox, flu, making cheese, antibiotics, decomposing matter. I wonder what the bread will look like in the coming weeks when they next check on it!
