Science Buddies

Class 3 have had a special visitor in school called Katie from Science Buddies who did a workshop all about keeping our bodies clean. In our first experiment the children put some germs (pepper) into a Petri dish then put soap on their hands and touched the germs. The soap moved the germs away from our fingers! The children then put some cream containing germs (glitter) onto their hands and used UV lights to have a look and see how many ‘germs’ were on their hands. They checked again after washing their hands properly and found that the germs had disappeared.

The children also enjoyed making bath bombs using a special mixture. They added colouring and special scents; including candy floss, pear and bubblegum. Our classroom smelt lovely! The children were very excited to take their bath bombs home to see if they fizzed up in water.
