Magnificent Coloured Petals.

3a have been investigating plants this week. We put a ‘Lilly of the valley’, which has a white petals, into blue food colouring to see what would happen.

The next day we noticed that the petals had blue stripes through them. This means that the blue dye has travelled up the stem all the way to the petal! Amazing!!!

Also we re-planted some tomato plants with Mrs Day this week because they were in very small plant pots and needed more space for their roots to grow.

In English, we started our new book, ‘The vilage that vanished’ by Ann Grifalconi. We are learning to orally re-tell the story in an interesting way. Alice Mu got a class certificate for her re-telling!
