Rocket Space Seeds Investigation

Date: 22nd Apr 2016 @ 12:04pm

Year 3 were very lucky to have been chosen to take part in a very special experiment!

We have been watching as Tim Peake and his team took care of some very special seeds whilst up on the International Space Station.
The seeds (Rocket) returned to earth, and last Monday we recieved a package full of information and with our precious 200 seeds. 
We have a blue and a red package (we're not sure which one went to space) and we must grow them and note down any differences and then after the 5 weeks is up, Tim Peake will announce from space which seeds went to space and which ones are from Earth.


We're very excited about this project! Keep checking back for updates on our seeds growth.
