Hairy Hat Men

Wow!! We planted some grass seeds last Wednesday.
When we came back to school after the weekend, our Hairy Hat Men had grown lots of hair. We will have to give them a haircut soon!
They are getting lots of sun and water and that's why they are growing so quickly.

Skipping Practice

We are practising our skipping at the moment.
We are getting ready for our Jump Rope for Heart Day.
We have found out that it's pretty tricky to skip and we need to practise everyday.

Flying a Kite

Today Mrs Harvey took everyone down to the bottom field to fly her amazing octopus kite. It was such a great day to fly a kite. It was nice and sunny and a bit windy too.
We had such amazing fun.

Book Character Day

On Thursday we had Book Character Day at school. We dressed up as our favourite book character. We went to the hall and each class went to the front and did a little parade in front of all the other classes. It was lots of fun.

Growing Seeds

Wow! Our Greenhouses are growing so quickly.
We can see the roots and shoots. We know that the roots grow down and the shoots grow up.

Our New World Little Gardens have sprouted really quickly too. We all planted 2 plants. Some plants are just popping up now, but some are quite tall already.

We have been collecting some different seeds. We want to see if they will sprout. We will have to keep watching to see if they do. We have corn, watermelon, apple, tomato, lettuce, pumpkin, sunflower and cucumber.

Growing Beans

We are learning about seeds and growing plants at school.
Today we asked the question: Do plants need soil to grow?
We decided to plant some bean seeds into plastic bags.
First we put some damp cotton balls into the bag and then we dropped in 2 bean seeds. 
Here we are getting them ready.
Tomorrow we will take photos of them hanging in the windows for some heat and light.
We wonder what will happen next!
