Our cucumber plants

At the start of the second half of the Spring term children carried out a scientific investigation to answer the question: What effect will changing the ... on the growth of a plant?  Children identified what a plant needs to grow. Working in groups they chose different variable to investigate: amount of light, amount of nutrients, type of nutrients, amount of soil, type of soil and temperature of water.  Children were surprised by the results.  After the investigation children will continue to grow the cucumbers.
