This week, Thistle Class have been thinking about their new topic…..Water World! We started off having a talk about what we already know about water. Where do we find it? What does it do? What do we do with it? What is it good for? Everybody had lots of ideas and we discovered that we already knew quite a lot.
One of the things that we knew was that water helps plants to grow. We wondered…..if plants didn’t have any water would they still grow? In order to find this out we were going to plant a seed. Some seeds would have water and some would not. We made predictions about what would happen. Most of us thought that the seed would not grow at all. Some of us thought that the seed might grow a little bit.
We planted some broad beans using clear cups so we could see what was happening to our seeds. We are going to watch what happens over the next few weeks to see if our predictions are right.
Here we are with our seeds:
