We hunted for plants that were growing in unusual places. We discussed how they might get there and how they are able to grow because underneath the concrete there might be soil and water creeps down between the paving stones. Some plants we found even had flowers!

"This week we followed up our learning from last week. We wanted to test different brands of toothpaste to see which got rid of dirt quickest, which had the best taste, which smelt the best and which was most attractive in colour.

 

We found out that Aquafresh was the best for taste, smell and getting rid of dirt the quickest. However, it wasn't the best in the colour category. People we asked, prefered the colour of Oral B because they liked the bright blue gel. People thought all of the toothpastes had a very strong taste.

 

All three of the toothpastes we tested today had sodium fluoride in them." Hamza
