Science Week in Year 5

Year 5 have been busy doing lots of different experiments during Science Week. We have been continuing with our science topic – Properties of Materials – learning how to separate different objects using filtration and sieving. We have also been learning all about micro-organisms! The week started with an overview of what micro-organisms were and how they can be extremely useful. The children then conducted two different experiments looking at the conditions that encourage mould growth and what makes yeast grow. Yuck! The children also baked some delicious bread cakes. Yum!
