Do plants grow better in sand or compost? Why?🌺

Date: 19th Jun 2015 @ 7:24pm

In 3NC this week we started our new science topic- plants. We decided to investigate whether radish seeds will grow better in compost or sand. To make it a fair test we have been making sure they receive the same amount of water and sunlight. I'm excited to find out what happens!🌱

Have a look at http://www.mbgnet.net/bioplants/parts.html to find out what the different parts of a plant do. We will be looking at celery next week.

We have also been learning about the 7 life processes common to all living things. Can you remember MRS NERG? Have a look at: http://www.icteachers.co.uk/resources/science/lifeprocesses.ppt. Then you could write an acrostic poem to help you to remember MRS NERG.👵
