Friday 9th September 2011 – Year Four Grow Plants
Yesterday, Maple and Jackalberry class’ started their science topic of Plants. We recorded and discussed what we already knew about what plants need to grow strong and healthy and how we know that plants are living. We also played a game on the computer where we had to give the plant enough light, heat and water to grow to its full size in 4 weeks – we found this quite tricky! Finally, the most exciting part of our lesson – we got to plant our own flowers! We each had 1 viola which we planted in a pot using compost and we made sure we watered it too. Our job is to keep a diary over the next 5 weeks to record how well our flower is growing. We must record how we look after it and include pictures to show how it grows over the coming weeks. We will compare our diaries the week before half term to see how we have got on!
