P4/5 had a fantastic opportunity to visit the science department at Queensferry High School.
In connection with our class science topic of inheritance, we looked at how DNA is part of every living thing and makes us unique. We all had great fun extracting DNA from a Kiwi fruit and being scientists for the morning!
This week we have been busy looking at keeping ourselves healthy. We looked at eating healthily as well as the importance of hygiene.
We set up our potato experiment to look at how germs could be present on different surfaces. It was decided as a class which objects we should test.
We were all very excited to see the results of the experiment. It shocked and surprised us how germs spread onto objects that we would touch everyday! We will definitely be washing our hands more often!!!
