What a plant needs to grow…

As part of our Science topicĀ ‘Plants’ the year 4 children have been investigating what a plant needs to grow. We attempted to grow cress but removed either the water, the nutrients (soil) or the light. We found that to grow healthy cress we needed all three of these things. We have also been gardening and have planted both cosmos and sweetcorn. These plants are getting water, nutrients and light and should begin to grow very soon.
