Year 2 have been making their own flowers out of different materials and then labelling the key parts. Jessica, Daria and Carl told me all about how the roots suck up the water and the water travels up the stem to the leaves and the rest of the flower! Carl also said that bees might like the brightly coloured petals.
We designed an experiment to test whether different materials would allow electricity to pass through them. A material which allows electricity to pass through is called a conductor. A material which doesn't allow electricity to pass through is called an insulator.
Yesterday children spent the day learning all about plants. They started by learning the key parts that make up a flower and learning about each parts function. They then tried to apply this knowledge and make their own plants out of specific materials. An investigation was also set up to try and prove what a plant needs in order to grow well. Hopefully in a few weeks year 3 will be able to share their results with you!
