 Letter from Mrs Taylor

30.3.20

Hello everyone,

I thought I’d share some exciting Science news!

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when we planted the runner bean seeds?  We talked about what seeds need to grow.  You all told me that seeds must have water, sunlight and soil to grow in.    But I said to you that I didn’t think seeds needed soil to be able to grow and you didn’t believe me.  You told me to prove it!   Well I have!

We planted our beans in a jar with just cotton wool to support them and gave them a drink of water.  Here are some photos of our seeds two weeks later (taken on friday afternoon). 

They have absorbed all of the water from the cotton wool and they have cracked open (germinated).  They have grown a root and shoot and will be ready to be plant out soon.

Now here are photos of our seeds today - they have doubled in size.  Isn’t that amazing! 

So what have we learned?  Seeds only need water to germinate – that means begin to grow a root and a shoot.  They don’t need soil or sunlight.  But to carry on growing strong and healthy, they will need sunlight so that they can make food using their leaves.  When they are transplanted into soil later, they will use their roots to suck up water and important vitamins and minerals from the soil; that they can’t get from the cotton wool. 

I’m looking after your bean seeds at home for you now.  When they are all ready, I will plant them into pots for you and put them in my greenhouse.

from Miss Maddocks xxx

In Beanies class in the Autumn term we...

Our play 

Our Christmas production  went down a storm today!  The crowds flocked to Lower School Hall today to see our production of "Whoopsy Daisy Angel."  Everyone performed  brilliantly and Mrs Taylor said that our singing was fantastic, some of the best she had heard!

Sudbury Hall Museum 

We visited Sudbury Hall The Childhood Museum where we found out how Victorian Children and families used to live, go to school, work and play. We really enjoyed playing with the Victorian toys!

Children In Need 2019 

 We raised money for 'Children in Need' by wearing spots and sparkles. 

 
We have had a fantastic first half term in the Beanies class! 
 
We have been reading the texts by Rob Biddulph 'Blown away' and 'Sunk' in English and doing lots of fantastic writing all about these texts.
