Year 3,4 Science

Friday 10 May 2024

This week, we have been Scientists.

Our enquiry question is ‘Does the number of seeds in a pot affect the growth of the plant?’

Each class has set the experiment up, planting either 1, 2 , 4 or 8 seeds in different pots. The children made sure each container had the same amount of soil, was placed in the same position in each classroom and is watered using the same amount of water. We will monitor and record the growth of the plants over the next couple of weeks.

Each child also planted their own sunflower so we can observe the growth over time.

Help at home by encouraging your child to explain the experiment. Maybe you could plant some seeds too!
