Year 5/6 Science

Year 5/6 Science
This term students in year 5/6 have been learning about plant and animal adaptations and survival. We have planted pea seeds using just a plastic zip lock bag and a wet paper towel. Students set up their experiments 3 weeks ago and the germinated seeds are still growing, some are growing a long way out of the zip lock bags! By germinating seeds this way, the students can see exactly how the roots are formed. We have been tending to our plants daily and analysing their growth. This week we will be conducting experiments to see how mould grows on bread. Students will discover the best conditions for mould growth.
