Today Class 2 had a day of science learning. We began by using the digital microscopes to investigate some things found around our playground, or in some cases, the things found in our mouths/ tongues – yuck!
We then moved onto a literacy co-operative task that involved the children learning about 1 micro-organism, then feeding back their information to a new group, in order to up-skill the whole table on microbes.
In the afternoon we took part in a fair test experiment to see how the amount of sugar influences the yeast during the making of dough. The children were a little disappointed not to see instant results, but I have a feeling they will be happy in the morning .
As the week goes on, we will be continuing to develop our learning on microbes and we hope to end the week with some bread making.
