Plant growth experiments

Over the past 2 weeks we have been examining what plants need to grow. We found that they need light, soil, water and the right temperature to grow. Here are our results.

Our experiment

 No soil

 Wrong temperature (kept in the fridge)

 No water

No light

Control (we think it got too much light and not enough water! However it did grow a small bit!)

Last Thursday the boys drew the school from observation. They did a great job. This week we will be using those drawings to make clay models of the school.

Budding artists

 Rang a 3 is full of budding artists. For the last 2 weeks we have been learning to draw from observation. We are trying to really focus and look at the object we are drawing.  Last Thursday we focused on drawing our hands. Here are some samples.
