Growing our own cress

This half term, we have been learning all about the world around us and we have been learning about 'growing'. We planted our own cress seeds and we talked about what plants need to grow. We wrote instructions and we sequenced the steps, talking about what to do next with our talking partners.


We read non-fiction books and story books such as 'Jasper's Beanstalk' and 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We loved watching our cress grow and we were so surprised at how much they had grown over the weekend. We measured the cress to see whose was the tallest. We were so proud to take it home and show our families.


The children were surprised that you could eat cress and some of the children said they were going to try it at home.
