Yesterday we planted some cress seeds in class as we have been learning about plants and the conditions necessary for growth. We know that plants need water, light and soil to grow. However, we didn't need soil to grow our cress seeds as they will grow perfectly fine on damp cotton wool. Teacher gave each of us a plastic cup with our name on it. Then we put some paper in it purely to add height. Next we wet some cotton wool and placed it on top of the paper in the cup. We then spread our seeds on top of the cotton wool. Cress seeds usually don't take very long to grow so we expect to have some lovely cress to bring home very soon!!!
