Senior Infants have been very busy learning all about plants. They learned all about the life cycle of a flower and collected some acorns. They are observing some of the acorns beginning to grow! If you look closely at the photo below you can see the root!

They also carried out an experiment to show what plants need to grow. They planted cress seeds. Some of the seeds had light but no water, some of the seeds had water but no light, some of the seeds had both light and water and the final group of seeds had no light or water at all. Senior Infants discovered that the seeds which grew the best were the ones that had both light and water!
