Year 9 pupils have been learning about Microorganisms or Microbes. They have learnt about the three main types of Microbes. In addition, they have explored in practical context, some of the behaviour or characteristics of microbes by carrying out an investigation on conditions needed for yeast's growth. This was related to respiration. The pupils have just been introduced to natural immunity and artificial immunity through antibiotics and vaccines.
A range of simple resources have been compiled to reinforce their knowledge and understanding on these areas and relate this to the current pandemic caused by COVID-19.
Wishing you all a safe and blissful summer holiday
