Pupils were surprised to see the growing progress of their plant when they came back from the Easter holidays.  Not all of their growing efforts did as well, but they have learned about the best growing conditions for seeds through the failures and successes!
 

Also pictured are some of the boys who were happy to get the chance to do some measuring in their Maths and Numeracy work recently as part of handling data.
