In Science, the children have been learning about the different parts of a plant, their functions and what plants need to grow healthily.

Year 2 took advantage of the recent sunny weather and took their Science learning outside. They identified what a plant needs to grow and they each planted a broad bean seed by carefully measuring out enough soil to fill the pot. After that, they planted their seed and watered it, before agreeing as a class on the best location to keep the pots. They have also conducted a class experiment where we planted one seed with no soil, a seed with soil but no sunlight and a final seed that had soil but no water. Once planted, the children made thoughtful predictions on the outcome of the different plants growth. They are now enthusiastically monitoring and recording the changes in their plants and making comparisons with the plants in different locations.

Careful planning ensured that our broad bean planting coincided with our study of traditional tales and Jack and the Beanstalk! We look forward to our final measuring before half term.
