This week Year 3 welcomed five scientists from Sheffield University. They came to teach us all about micro organisms. We learnt that they are all around us and are microscopic in size. We were split into 'microbe' groups - fungi, bacteria and viruses and using swabs we hunted for the dirtiest places possible in our Wildlife Area - which was great fun as you can see. Then we scrapped our swabs onto agar plates. The scientists have taken them to the laboratory, we can't wait to see which microbes will grow on them in our next lesson!
