Year 5 Cress Fest

2 weeks ago Yr 5 were put in groups and ordered to plant four pots of cress. We had to decide what we wanted to change in our experiments. One group wanted to find out what would happen if they said kind or mean things to the cress. This was because one person in their group had seen a blog about how it had affected trees growing. Other groups tested if different soils, light or temperature affected growth. Today, after caring for our plants for two weeks, we analysed the results of our experiments. Some of our plants looked great- some not so great. We had to analyse the results and work out what conclusions we could draw from them.
