Our Garden Science Experiment – stage one

On Thursday we went to the garden to learn about flower cells. We also did an experiment on flowers. First, we predicted. We predicted that the food dye would change the colour of the petals or that the petals will fall off. We predicted that the flowers would change colour in 7 days, 5 hours, or some thought straight away.

After that we filled a bottle up half way with water. Each group decided on a colour to dye the water. One of the groups chose red and one group chose purple. We went ahead and put the dye and then the flower. Nothing happend so we went and had a look around the garden. It has been 1 day and the flower has had a slight change. Here is a picture:




Our Broad Beans

 Hi everyone,

When Mrs Cosgrave was away, we started growing broad bean seeds in glass jars. We worked as a group to put them into glass jars with water and paper towels. About a week later we saw some white curly, pointy roots sprout and grow downwourds. About a week ago they started sprouting their shoots and then their leaves. Some have  grown really big and other small ones have just started. One has a bit of mould on it. We think that it grew because the glass was dirty.

Here are the pictures
