This week we planted our bean seeds. We are looking to see what plants need in order to grow. Some of the plants will have water and sunlight. Others will have only sunlight and some only water. Some of the plants will have no water or sunlight.
This week we looked at measuring length, mass and volume.
We calculated the mass of different fruit we made from playdough. The melon had to be the heaviest and the grape the lightest.
We also measured out different volumes of liquid before ordering them from the least to most in volume. It was exciting to hear children discuss why they used each container and realising that their cylinder would not be big enough to hold 1 litre.
