UKS2 Science

Years 5 and 6 have been learning about DNA. DNA is the recipe for a living thing. It determines what we look like from eye colour to height to allergies but it’s so small that we can’t see it without a microscope… unless it’s strawberry DNA and you’re in UKS2!

Carefully following instructions, we mixed ingredients and filtered out a strawberry solution, which then separated to show us the DNA of the strawberries.
