Science investigation

We are investigating how plants can be grown without needing certain things.

We are going to investigate whether a plant will grow with red light only, without soil and whether plants can be propagated without using seeds but from an adult plant.

Our ideas are to try and help grow more plants, in a range of different places to help ensure we have enough food to feed the world.

The Tempest

We have been learning songs linked to the story of The Tempest.

We know the story has magic, revenge and disaster in it.

 

How to use an apostrophe

We have been learning about how to use an apostrophe.

We know that the apostrophe is used for omission and possession.

Omission: this is when a word is a contraction. Two words have been put together and shortened. Can not = Can’t.        Do not = Don’t.

Possession: this is when the apostrophe is used to show that something belongs.

The boy’s coat.        The witch’s hat.

Leeks

We have used leeks in our lentil stew. We thought these smelt like onions!

Do you know which vegetable the leek is related to?
