To begin science week in Year 6, we were visited by Neatherd High School who helped us to test food for starch and sugar. We enjoyed using the high school equipment and carrying out a high school experiment. The children listened to talks by professional scientists which included: a plant pathologist, a bacteria scientist and a dental health nurse. They shared their experiences in their profession and the route they took to get there. To link our learning in class with the theme of ‘journeys’, we researched where our food comes from, in particular bread, which we baked.
