New planters

Parent Council have very kindly bought us some new planters. We have been planting the plants which we have grown this term.


Learning about plants that grow in Shapinsay

We have been learning about plants which grow around the school and finding out how to identify them.

Weeding and harvesting

Things have been growing in the polytunnel. Sadly some were weeds so we had to weed the beds. We found some radishes and a leek that were ready for harvest though!

Model Gardens

We designed and made model gardens...

What do plants need?

We did an experiment to find out what plants need to grow healthily. Each group tested one thing and kept everything else the same so that it was fair.

One group tested light. Can you tell which plant was in the dark and which got lots of sun?

The next group of plants tested soil. Which one has no soil?

The last group tested water.

From our experiment results, we think plants grow best with lots of soil, lots of sun and about 15ml water per day.
