In year six we made mini biomes in plastic bottles.we created the biome out of stones, soil and put little seeds in the small holes we made. Then we put the biomes into the places we have chose which were freezing cold freezer, the warm radiator(by the windowsill,outside(quite windy)girls changing rooms. The biomes were the desert, tundra, taiga,Savannah ,rainforest,Decidious forest. The rainforest and the Decidious forest thrived. After that we put them in the places we put them in places we thought they would grow the best.

In science we have been learning about microbes (micro-organisms) . We have done an investigation on which is the optimum environment for mould (rhizopus stolonifer) to grow (on bread)and how much will grow over 2 weeks. So which is it? Well, we picked four environments (rooms) the four rooms were, changing rooms at 30 degrees Celsius, classroom at 24 degrees Celsius, fridge at 4 degrees Celsius and freezer at-18 degrees Celsius. And yes you guessed it the changing rooms came first and got the most mould at 3346 mm2, the classroom came second with 846 mm2, fridge came third with 2 mm2 of mould and freezer came last with 0 mm2 and it wasn’t even stale!!!
Did it test what we wanted to test… Yes. Was it a valid test… Yes. So, it was a successful test!
We have been doing some Mayan art with chalk pastels. We worked our socks off and they turned out to look amazing. We had to make sure they had at least one line of symmetry and at least one Mayan symbol. We are very proud of all our Mayan artwork and we are excited to put them on display!

Some of us have used 3 sticks but most of us used 2 lolly sticks we used different colour thread.we thought that the Mayan weaving was quite hard but when we got the Hang of it we were as quick as a stick.by Hamish and Oliver
