Journey of a Germ

Year 2 were visited by the Crick Institute today, with a hands on workshop looking at the journey of a germ. We saw a sneeze spread to a third of the people in the class!! (Luckily it was glitter, not a real virus). We learnt about how far a sneeze can travel (FOUR buses away!) and how tiny the viruses are. We then explored the classroom with microscopes, looking at clothing, skin and even each other’s hair.
