Children in Volta Class have been planting tiny, brown cress seeds. They are investigating the best conditions for plants to germinate. In groups they planted seeds into pots
Pots 1 & 2: the seeds have been given water and sunlight.
Pots 3 & 4: the seeds have been given water but no sunlight.
Pots 5 & 6: the seeds have been given sunlight but no water.
Pots 7 & 8: the seeds have been given no water and no sunlight.
The class will observe what happens to the plants and check to see if their predictions are correct.
A few days later the update was in. While they were away from school for the weekend the cress plants shot up.
In DT, Year 2 have been making simple frames. We carefully measured the square wooden dowel and used a saw to cut the wood. We then used a lynx jointer to attach the pieces of wood to create our frames. Finally, our frames were joined to our moving pictures which included one of the following mechanisms: a slider, a pivot or a wheel mechanism.
In Art we created paintings in the style of Jackson Pollock. The children dripped the paint onto their paper to create their masterpieces!
