The Green Fingers Crew!
This week we have continued to learn about plants, their different parts and what a plant needs to grow strong and healthy. We learnt about deciduous and evergreen trees and went outside to gather leaves. We then used a leaf classification sheet to determine whether the leaves belonged to a deciduous tree or an evergreen tree. We had great fun doing this. We then recorded how many of each leaf we found outside on our own individual pictograms. We also planted our own peas on Friday of last week and have had fun watching these start to grow as the week has passed. Today we planned an investigation to find out whether a seed really does need soil, water and sunlight to grow. This generated LOTS of discussion! We’ll hopefully find out the answer next week by keeping a close eye on our experiment seeds!
