Our plant experiment

In Science, Puma Class have been discovering what plants need. They thought of questions to investigate.


Some children asked 'Will a plant grow in the dark?'    Others wondered ' Will a plant grow without heat?' 


These are some photos showing the results.

The tomato seedlings did not do well. The plants in the dark went yellow and withered. Some died. The seedlings in the fridge went crispy and died.


What we learnt....
