This week I would like you all to plant a seed. We can then watch them grow over the half term. You can choose the seed you would like to plant. It could be a (magic) bean, a sunflower seed, some cress-anything you like. We can then compare how different seeds grow.

 

Follow the link below for some ideas:

Have a look at the pictures below to see the steps to planting a seed.

You should find a way to record the growth of your seed. You could take photographs every day and make a photo diary. Label the photographs and write a sentence to say what is happening to your seed.

You could print off the diary in the link below and use this to record what happens.
