Year 1 Scientists

Today was 'Come as a Scientist Day' for Year 1 and all the children looked fantastic. They each dressed as a “famous” scientist and seemed to really enjoy telling each other about who they all were. Mrs Costello came into the classroom and the pupils collected some germs from around the classroom using Germ Collecting Devices, or GCDs for short (aka. cotton buds) to grow on Agar jelly in Petri dishes. They then came up with a 'Handwashing Hero' to help people wash their hands and eliminate the germs. And of course the day couldn’t go by without performing the 'Wow' experiment of Mentos in Coca Cola!
