Seed Investigation

This half-term, Year 5 are learning all about lifecycles of plants and animals. In the last couple of weeks, we have been finding out about how plants reproduce and what they need for healthy growth.

This week we have set up an experiment to see how temperature affects germination and growth. Each group of children planted two sets of seeds in identical pots using the same compost. One set of seeds has been left outside in the cold and the second set is being kept inside where it is warmer. Over the week, we will observe whether the growth of the two sets of seeds differs.
