Year 5 have been learning about the importance of personal hygiene this week. They have learnt all about their bodies starting to change and how they need to make sure they shower, wash their hands and brush their teeth regularly.
As a class we have discussed how germs are spread and we carried out an experiment to look at some evidence. We took 4 quarters of potato and rubbed one in a flower bed, one around a sink, one was rubbed across a child’s hands and the fourth one was simply put in a plastic bag as the ‘Control potato”. We made our predictions as to which one might have the most mould on, and in one week, we will study the potatoes and see if we we’re correct.
