Science Experiment – Planting Poppy Seeds and Wildflower Meadows

In Science, we started our first experiment of the term this week. We have planted poppy seeds in a range of containers to see which growing conditions will give us the quickest and biggest poppy plants. The children had a great time planting their seeds and have made predictions about which seeds will germinate into plants the quickest. To make it as fair a test as possible, the containers and seeds will get the same amount of water, sunshine and heat during our experiment.

As an additional contribution to our school, Class 2 have planted wild meadow flower seeds to encourage more butterflies, bees and wildlife to visit our grounds. These flowers will also provide some beautiful colours for the rest of the school to look at while they are in bloom.
