Living Things

(Autumn Term Topic)

​Friday 16th September: The Seven Life Processes

We have been categorising different examples into 'living' and 'non-living' categories using our knowledge of what all living things do (and with a little help from our friend Mrs Nerg):

M - Movement

R - Respiration

S - Sensitivity


N - Nutrition

E - Excretion

R - Reproduction

G - Growth


Sorting Living Things Using Keys

Wednesday 5th October: Mould Experiment


Today we sorted different living things into their kingdoms: animals, plants, prokaryotes, protoctists and fungi.


After focusing on fungi, we have planned and set up an experiment to answer our key question: Does hand-washing affect the amount of mould that will grow on bread?



We have pinned bread up in our classroom marked 'control' (no hands), 'dirty' (handled before hand-washing) and 'clean' (handled after hand-washing). We will be monitoring them closely to see if any mould grows and, if so, how quickly!

Can you spot our first spec of mould? Does it match up with your prediction?
