P 4/5 have been learning about how seeds grow. We planted either runner beans or peas in a clear glass jar to see what happened. As they started growing the plants made all these wonderful roots that are at least as big as the plant above it. We have now planted them all in soil and they will be ready to go home soon!

One of those beans didn’t grow so Kayleigh planted another and then the first one suddenly took off and she has two!
Miley’s pea plant looks very healthy.
Andrew’s first pea drowned as it fell into the water but the second one looks very happy.
Tom’s plant hid it’s roots in the middle behind all the tissue.
Poppy’s runner bean has grown huge!
You can clearly see the feeding roots of Jennifer’s bean.
Katie might get to taste some runner beans this summer. This tangle of roots looks very healthy!
