Year 2 Plant Investigation

Year 2 have been helping Jack decide the best way to plant his beans. In the story, his mum threw the beans out of the window. Was this the best way? How could we plant the best beanstalk? We decided to investigate and find out!

The Caterpillars investigated whether it mattered if we planted the bean on top or under the soil.

Ladybirds & Spiders wondered whether it made a difference which way up we planted the seed.

Bees and Butterflies investigated whether it made a difference if you planted the bean near the bottom or near the top.image

We have absolutely loved caring for our own plants and being ‘apprentice gardeners’. Come and have a look at our mini gardens in Year 2!

CHALLENGE

What did you predict would happen?

Can you explain what we have found out so far?

Is this what you expected?
