Friday 24th April
One of our topics this term is 'Growing'. We have been busy planting in our garden since the beginning of March and now we're finding out about how things grow. On Monday we planted cress seeds on some cotton wool, we suspended a camera just above it and set it to 'time lapse' mode, this meant it took a photograph a minute for four days! We have then used the computer to play these photographs together really quickly and so we can actually the seeds germinating.

Today we went out into our garden and guess what?...
We looked for the fat and juicy ones and picked those. We took them into the classroom and opened the pod, we counted how many peas we had, Rhys and Henry had 9 peas in their pod!!! Next we ate the peas they were; juicy, nice, good, sweet.
Some of us ate the pods they were quite nice too.
