Mouldy bread leads to more experiments…

The children have noticed changes in our bread experiment and have delighted in looking at it a bit closer. It has taken a few weeks but the bread has started to change in appearance. Our discussion about the mould that has started to grow on the bread has led to the children wanting to see what happens to other foods when they are left over time. The children have chosen to do an experiment with a banana, an apple, a pear and an orange. They have predicted what might happen to the fruit….”Banana skin might go green and the banana might go hard” “Oranges will go red and green. It will go mouldy” “Apples will go green and squishy.” So, look out in the classroom for our experiment and see if the children’s predictions are correct.


Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
