Our Science Question is an opportunity for all Key Stage 2 pupils to use independent research to provoke discussion and stimulate scientific thinking.
The question is set on a Tuesday/Wednesday, and can be seen on this webpage and on the Science noticeboard in the main corridor (opposite Maple Class). Answers are due ten days later on Thursday, and should be written in a speech bubble and placed on the noticeboard. The best answers are awarded a certificate, which will be presented in assembly.

Answer To Past Questions
“Seeds in the dark”
The fact that green plants need light to grow is common knowledge. It therefore might be expected that seeds also need light to begin grow. This is not the case. Although a small number of seeds, (e.g. lettuce) may need some light to break their dormancy, most seeds do not require any light. If they did need light then there would be problems when seeds are buried under ground since none of them would grow.
