Before school ended, Ms Burke's Senior Infants sowed three broad bean seeds in different conditions as part of a science experiment. We found out that the seed that had water AND sun sprouted!!!
Ms Burke brought the seedlings home to care for them while we are away from school., and she now has this update for us:
Senior Infants Experiment: Update from Ms Burke
I am happy to report that the broad bean plant is continuing to grow well. It is loving all the sunny weather we have been having lately! It does, however, need to be watered daily.
I have covered the plants with netting to protect them from birds and insects. Some of the broad bean plants were nibbled by slugs, but they still seem to be growing well. I will update you again over the coming weeks.
