Newstime became more risk taking and controlled chaos than actual news reporting as each child brought a plant to smell and/or taste. We willingly (most of us, anyway..) tasted things from apples to pomegranates; fennel to sage. It was an aromatic and interesting week.
We are now eagerly awaiting the "birth" of our bean babies, which are currently growing in their own plastic bag incubators on the classroom window. Each day, we observe our beans and record the changes in our Plant books. Split seeds, small roots and even some green stems have been noticed.
BREAKING NEWS........THIS JUST IN
Since we have been on holiday for a week, exciting things have happened in the bean nursery. I am happy to announce the arrival of our "babies".
- "My bean is no longer a bean, it's a plant. It has roots and big leaves and a stem" Arissa
- "My bean has leaves now!" Elias
- "My bean has grown a lot since I saw it on Day 8. It has leaves and a stem." Matthew
We will continue to watch carefully and record the growth of our beans in our Plant books. How long will it be until they poke out of the top of the bags?
