Science week

This week is the Science and technology week and we have been learning lots of fun & exciting things through science investigations at school.
We have watched our cress seeds growing, they've gotten really tall lately! To see if the plants need sunlight as well as water we've placed one well watered plant in a dark cupboard. We will check it in a few days to see if it has changed.

We have also continued to measure & record the rainfall this week using the rain gauge, as well as using symbols on our class calendar.

The celery sticks that were placed in the red, orange and clear water have all turned the colour of the water! This proves that plants take up water through the stalk to the leaves & we have looked at the little capillaries that carry it.
