This term our topic is Flowers and Insects, but for this half-term it’s all about flowers!
We have conducted two experiments to explore how flowers and plants work.
Our first experiment was to find out what conditions a seed could grow in. We planted runner bean seeds in groups and decided how we could test them. We ended up with one seed with no water, one seed with lots and lots of water, one seed with only water, one seed in the dark(in the science cupboard), one seed that had a little bit of everything and we even put one seed in the freezer! Over the course of a few weeks we have studied the progress of our seed and discovered that our seed definitely won’t grow when it is frozen and goes ‘mouldy and gross’ in lots of water! We created seed diaries to monitor our seeds progress and drew pictures of its different states.
