Year 1 News Report Summer 2015

This term we have been carrying out some interesting science activities.  At the beginning of the term we planted different varieties of potatoes in order to observe and record their growth. Look at how much they have grown so far!


Week 1                                                                      Week 7                                 

We are finding it really exciting to watch our potatoes grow so quickly and cannot wait to decide what to make with them. 


Our other science investigation looked at different materials and how waterproof they are. Using tissue, plastic, paper and cotton, we predicted which material was the most and the least waterproof.  The investigation proved an interesting learning experience as the results were unexpected, according to some of the predictions!
