Lego Workshop

During science week we were very lucky to have a visit from Learnit’s Lego Workshop. 5th and 6th class took part in a machines and mechanisms workshop and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.

Seeds in a bag

We planted seeds in a bag to observe their growth. We used wet cotton wool in the bottom of the bag along with the seeds and then we stuck them to the window to get sunlight. We will be observing and measuring their progress as the weeks go by. We also put a seed (with water) in darkness to see what would happen and we put another seed in sunlight (without water).

After two weeks we removed the seeds from the bag to observe their growth. Results are below:
