Year 3’s science investigations

Elmhurst School for Boys

6th February 2014

In Science lessons, Year 3 have been carrying out investigations in the playground, looking at rocks and soils, and the weathering of materials. They have also enjoyed growing their own plants from bulbs.

Year 3 comment on their Science projects:

“For our plants we used plastic containers because it is strong and won’t crack. I used a glass jar so that I could see how it was doing and how it was growing.” (Kobby 3B)

“First I put glue so my blue and green tissue paper would stick on my pot.  I used tissue paper to add colour and very shiny glitter to add sparkle. I put wet soil in the pot to make the plant grow. Also I put water so the plant does not get thirsty.” (Shanjay 3B)

“We put them in a dark cupboard and once they were 2 cm tall we moved them to a window sill so they would think it was spring.” (Tobi 3C)

“In Science I enjoy all the projects. What I would like to find out is what happens if we cut a bulb in half” (Isaiah 3C)

“I found out that you have to have patience for it grow! In Science I enjoyed finding out what happened when we put a gummy bear in water… it got bigger.” (Akbar 3B)

“In science I enjoyed doing the tests and learning about plants. I want to find out what type of flower it is.” (Matthew 3C)

“In Science I have enjoyed talking about the plants and saying how they sucked up water. I would like to find out what goes on inside a plant.” (Oscar 3B)
