James and Min Zin's Observations

We have noticed a few things about our plants.  

"I left my plant in the sun for the first weekend.  On Monday I found it was short and was darker and thicker than the others."  James

"My one was trying to catch the sun that's why it grew taller."  Min Zin

"The plants that don't get enough water look sad."

We did some research about how plants grow and found out:

  • Plants take energy from the sun to complete a process called photosynthesis.
  • Plants need different things to grow like sunlight, water, soil (or something to grow in like cotton wool for ours).
  • Some plants need more sun than others to grow.

What a sight!

We were amazed this morning to find our plants had been so busy over the weekend growing.  One of them however, was left on the windowsill and we did notice some differences.  Can you spot them?

Watching and Waiting

We have begun to look into how we keep ourselves and our environments healthy.  

As part of this learning Room 9 are looking after, and keeping healthy their own cress seeds.  We were amazed to find that after only one day our seeds were already sprouting.

We will keep watching and share our observations as our plants grow.

Swimming Begins

Swimming has begun and Room 9 are learning from tutors that come to our school pool.  They are listening, practising and getting better every day, ready to be safe in the water.
