Hmmmmm  today we looked at the use of micro-organisms in food, in particular cheese.  We talked about the process, looked at a few then the class were challenged in groups to see who would try and taste the the most of the stinky cheese!  Some where much nicer than others, the goats cheese made Mr Waywell cry it was so stinky!

Today we baked bread in our class (as part of our micro-organism topic.)  Our aim to see the effect that yeast has in the production of bread.  As our first cooking task in Year 6, the class liked that they had to follow the recipe and cook on there own (without a little group and a teacher!)  They were up to the task and each group managed to produce their own bread.  We even tried to be healthy in health week by making wholemeal bread instead of white!

Compared to the bread without yeast it tasted and looked MUCH nicer!  What did yours taste like?

Today we had a visitor to the class courtesy of Jessica.  Although at first sight it was enough to scare lots of the class and Miss McKenna, after looking closely it was only the skin of a tarantula.  We learned that as tarantula’s grow, they must step out of their outer skeleton so that a new one can be formed.  The skin looks very real, you can even see the teeth!  Here are the brave people who held it (many wouldn’t!)
