Planning our factfile

We have been historians in literacy this week. We have been researching facts about Alexander Bell or Thomas Edison. Tomorrow we are going to be creating our own fact files about these inventors.

Our science project

We have become inventors today. We found this question written in the classroom when we walked in this morning. We were asked ‘How can we grow our vegetables in a small space?’ – we were given string, plant pots, seeds and soil. We had to come up with a plan. We decided to hang the plant pots and see if we can grow more food to feed the population of the planet by using vertical farms.
