As part of the exhibition the children were introduced to bacteria that had been magnified and displayed in a dark room. They were then encouraged to use microscopes and looked at bacteria that is all around us. In response to what they saw, students were then asked to  draw and create models of bacteria - which certainly raisied an awareness of the need for hygiene!

Students were fortunate enough to meet and talk to the artist Lena Bui, who explained the inspiration behind her art and encouraged the children to look closely at everyday fruit and vegetables in order to draw them accurately. Lena also discussed how her art work was created using non-recyclable and man-made materials.

The visit coincided with the Year 6 International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic, ‘They see the World Like This’.  The experience offered the children the opportunity to meet an artist and to see the world in a completely different way through a microscope. The Year 5 children, as part of learning Scientific Enquiry skills, found the trip useful to generate questions and also realise that science is all around us. 

We would like to thank the ‘The Factory’ Art Gallery for hosting us and Mary Chambers for organising all of the visits.

Ms Deborah Spencer, Year 5 Teacher/MP3 Leader
