During the past few weeks, Class 1 have been busy planning and conducting their own science experiment. Within science, they are looking at the ‘structure of plants’ and ‘what plants need to grow and stay healthy’. They have therefore decided to see how plants grow (starting with a seed) in different conditions. Together they agreed to place the plants in various different locations around the school, such as the windowsill, a dark cupboard and the staff room fridge. These plants have constant checks throughout the week and the KS1 pupils are recording their own findings. The class are also having regular discussions about them to promote language skills, comparing the conditions their plants are growing in and the difference in growth.
