Sprouting into Spring time

For the past two weeks year 5 have been growing garlic, snowdrops and potatoes. We only put a small amount of water on them and they have made massive progress. Also every child has a bean growing for themselves in a plastic cup with a tiny bit of water. Our task was to see how long it would take to grow these with a small amount of water making it able to grow. The day we grew the plants they were already making big progress. I am very sure that in the next two weeks they will grow to their full potential. In our topic books our lessons are mostly based on plants and we have written about how they pollinate other flowers to spread more flowers across our field. Also we sketched snowdrops, bulbs and potatoes and then we labelled them saying what each part does. I am really excited to watch the germination of the seeds. Lucas Finch 


Recently, we have been growing some special items, potatoes, garlic, snowdrops and our task is to see how they have grown. Year 5 have been growing a bean in a plastic cup. Some of the beans have been soaked in some water. Last week we went outside and sketched signs of spring in the super surroundings. We have been doing a lot over the last few weeks and I can’t wait until we see them fully grown. Charlie Fellows
