Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome parents, carers and children to the Class 6 page. We have been learning about lots of exciting things........
In Science, we investigated which conditions were best for micro organisms to grow. The children placed the slices of bread in different conditions and we observed the bread over the next few weeks.
We found that extreme heat from the boiler killed micro organisms and so no mould grew.
The low temperatures in the fridge put the micro organisms to sleep. While the bread was in the fridge there was very little growth but once we brought it in to the classroom the mould quickly grew.
It didn't seem to matter if the bread was in a light place or a dark place, the mould still grew.
The control slice of bread, which no one had touched, stayed mould free the longest.
We were lucky to receive a visit from Warburton's Bakery. The children learnt all about healthy meals, they even got to make their own healthy sandwich.
