Year 6 have begun growing mould for their Micro-organisms experiment. They are testing the different conditions that mould grows well in. So far, moist bread on the classroom windowsill has grown the most, with several mould spots of up to 0.7cm wide. We look forward to seeing the final results.
They have also been examining how clean their hands are – half the class wiped their dirty hands on a piece of bread, the other half washed theirs before wiping on the slice. One of our Year 6’s dirty hands have begun moulding nicely, whereas another Year 6’s clean hands developed no growth.
