Our Science topic this half term is Plants.
Last week, we set up an experiment to see what plants need to grow. Children worked in pairs to fill two plastic pots with compost and mustard seeds. One pot got left on the windowsill and the other pot got put in the dark cupboard in the classroom. Both pots were watered the same amount.
Here are the results! We were amazed to see that the mustard seeds in the cupboard did germinate.
These were on the windowsill so had plenty of light. They look pretty healthy!
These were in the dark cupboard so didn't have any light. They look quite unhealthy.
We have set up a further two experiments;
Do plants need water to grow?
Do plants need soil to grow?
We look forward to sharing the results with you.
