This week, Year 1 have been learning more about plants. We have planted our own sunflowers, cress and peas. The children came up with their own questions whilst planting such as "Do all plants need soil?" "Do all plants need the sun?", "What happens if you put a plant in the fridge?" and "What happens if a plant doesn't get any water?" We are now investigating these questions by planting some seeds with no soil, in the cupboard, in the fridge and not watering one of them too.
We have also dissected some flowers and labelled them. We are busy waiting for our potatoes to finish 'chitting' before we plant them in the garden.
