Colourful Mould

What happens to food when it is left on the window ledge all week?

That is what Year 2 have been finding out this week. Each group prepared a container that included a piece of bread, pear, carrot and grated cheese. We wrote our predicitions then recorded daily observations of what we could see and smell. There was a noticeable odour by the end of the second day and we were beginning to see some interesting colours. When we checked today we had pink bacteria, yellow, green and white mould!
