Year 6 have been learning about Carolus Linnaeus and his system of classification in science this month. The children explored how to use a branching key, and were introduced to the kingdoms of living things. They discovered how to classify microbes such as bacteria. The children planned a science investigation to see how bacteria and fungus develops and grows. They left different slices of bread in different conditions to see what would happen over the span of a few weeks. As you can see, the results were pretty gross!
