Summer Term 2021

Topic- Growing

This term we have been learning through inquiry based learning. We have been using our questions about growing and finding out the answers. We are also creating our own garden shop and hopefully sell our produce that we grow. We have decided to grow sunflowers, beans, carrots and strawberries. We will be creating a advert for our garden shop.

Here are some of our questions we wanted to find out.

  1. How do plants grow?
  2. What do plants need to grow? How to plant a seed.
  3. Do plants need soil to grow?
  4. How do we grow?
  5. What are parts of the flower called?

We planted a bean seed and created a bean diary to document how it grew. We asked everyone in our class what they wanted to grow and created a tally chart and graphs.

Our experiment can a seed grow without soil?

and the answer is YES they can. Here we are planting our seedlings in the garden.

We made recycled plastic bottles to create green houses for our carrots to grow.

here are our carrots growing so far…

We have a garden centre in our class.

Our strawberry plants are growing nicely!
