We are learning all about Photosynthesis for Science this week. We planted some lentils in cotton wool in groups to see if they will grow and make their own food. We put cotton wool in the bottom of a cut bottle. We wet the cotton wool and sprinkled on some lentils. We’re watering them every two days and looking forward to seeing what happens! We’ve also placed one pot in a cupboard where it won’t get any sunlight. We want to see if they will be any different to our lentils in the sun.

Day 1 – lentils are planted




Day 3 – lentils begin to sprout and grow roots
