Biodiversity in 1st Class

Our school has been learning a lot about biodiversity over the last few months.

In 1st Class we decided to learn about plant growth through the growing of seeds.

We learned that the three things a plant needs to grow are water, carbon dioxide and sunlight.

Firstly we planted cress seeds on a wet tissue. They were placed on the windowsill where they would get a lot of light,  We observed our findings over a week in an individual recording book. The children learned what germination meant and saw first hand the seed coming apart and the roots moving downwards while the shoot began growing upwards.




We then planted sunflower seeds into little pots and took turns watering them as they grew on the windowsill.

We watched a very interesting time lapse video on the growth of sunflowers.

Again we recorded what we learned about the growth of our sunflowers.

Finally we enjoyed a minibeast hunt outside! We discovered many little creatures and put them in our observing box to examine before returning them to their homes in the soil.
