Microscopes in year 4

This week the year 4 children have really enjoyed using the microscopes.

The children described what they could see using adjectives, such as gritty, crumbly, granules, swirly and segmented.

They explored changing the focus on the microscope to make the object clearer.

We looked at a 2p coin, sugar granules, flour, tea leaves, sponge and even a dead wasp and fly!

Year 4 can’t wait to use them again!
