This week we conducted two experiments with cress seeds and broad bean seeds. The first experiment was testing the direction of growth with cress seeds and the second experiment we were looking at the germination of a broad bean seed.
In the first experiment we put damp cotton wool in a seed tray and sprinkled cress seeds on it. We water it every day and watch what direction it will grow.
For the second experiment we put broad bean seeds in a jar. We began by putting two in every jar. We pressed the seeds against the side of the jar and put wet cotton wool in so the seeds stay in place. We put one upside down to see which direction it would grow and the other the right way round. We are doing this to get a closer view of germination.
This experiment is educational and it is a very fun experiment and we are all enjoying it!
Keep watching here to see our results day after day.

We wish all our staff, students and their families a healthy and happy Easter break.
The boys making their First Communion this year will tonight celebrate the Sacrament of First Penance. The ceremony takes place in the school hall which has been decorated beautifully by the boys, their teacher and our SNAs. Well done to all involved, a wonderful evening is in store.
We were on the look out for signs of spring on the way back from the church yesterday and today. Here are a few photos we took. We also tweeted these photos as part of the #signsofspring2012 project!
