Medicine through the Ages-Marvellous Microorganisms!

Throughout the Autumn Term and the first half of the Spring Term, our topic will look at medicine throughout the ages. We will start by learning about the plague of 1665 and why it spread so quickly. Our trip to the plague village of Eyam on the 20th September will, hopefully, help to fuel their interest. This will lead onto microorganisms-good and bad-and the children will learn about the different types through conducting many experiments. We will study how medicine has evolved and adapted throughout the years as well as learning about medical breakthroughs and the scientists behind these amazing discoveries. We have booked a number of visiting speakers that we know will spark their interest: an Eyam resident who has written books on the plague; a professor of genetics who will talk about DNA; King's Science Department who will be doing experiments with the children; a GP who will be talking about treating diseases, just to name a few!  We are really looking forward to teaching this fascinating topic!
