Science Week - Year 6
During science week, Year 6 were using mould to investigate what makes organisms thrive.

These were our results:
We also learnt about a famous scientist called Alexander Fleming. He discovered Penicillin in 1928 when the mould in one of his petri dishes had destroyed many types of disease-causing bacteria.
