Grayson Perry writes to year 3
In Science this term, we are learning about plants. Each class in year 3 has planted some seeds so that we can learn about how plants grow.
Class 2 have planted some beans, carrots and radish. We have been watering our beans each day and the seed trays twice a week. The radish shoots have been growing much more quickly than the beans and carrots, and some shoots have already grown out of the soil.
When the plants have finished growing we might taste them! The beans are much more slower to grow than the carrots. Did you know that beans can take up to 5 days to grow?
In art we have been looking at different colours and colour mixing. To help us explore different greens we found lots of green objects and put them together. We found dark green, light green, mint green, emerald, jade and turquoise. What greens can you see around you?
We also mixed yellow and blue to make different versions of green. Class 1 had a lot of fun doing this, some people had a bit of paint on their hands. We found out the contrasting colour is red and it was a bit surprising! Lots of people enjoyed it all!
