Today we had to think about what plants need to grow. We drew our ideas and then shared. Everyone agreed that plants need:
sunlight, water and soil to grow.
Then it was time to make our Hairy Harrys! We all brought a jar and a stocking to school. Mrs Kennedy had some soil and grass seeds. We followed a procedure to make our Hairy Harrys.
Mrs Kennedy asked 'What would happen if one Hairy Harry had no light? How could we find out what would happen to the Hairy Harry if it had no light?
We decided that we could put a Hairy Harry in a cupboard so that it had no light.
Olivia thinks that it won't grow.
James thinks it will be all droopy.
Cormac thinks the Hairy Harry will be brown.
Then we decided to have a Hairy Harry without water and one without soil.
What will happen? Will the Hairy Harrys grow? We are very excited to see what will happen!
