Busy days!

Here are some photos from some of the things we have done recently in Room 5

Hatching Eggs!

We have seven eggs in an incubator. They are due to hatch around the 11th or 12th of November.

This chart shows all the stages that the chicks go through when they are in the egg.

There are four breeds in the eggs:

Here is the incubator.

We are learning a lot of scientific words that go with hatching eggs.

We are crossing off the days till they hatch.
Not long to go!

Buried rubbish

Remember earlier in the year we reported on burying different kinds of rubbish to see how well they rot down (or don't rot down) in the soil?

Well, after six months we dug them up.
Here is what we discovered:

Here is the garden where the rubbish was buried.

The signs that identified each type of rubbish had gone. But we soon found out what was in each part.

This was an old woolen sock. It is still a sock but we saw how the roots of the plants were growing through it, and we realised that in a few more years it would be broken down into plant food.

These chip packets look exactly the same as when they were buried. They haven't changed a bit.
It will take many many years for them to begin to break down.

This is why we celebrate nude food. We agree it is best not to buy food that comes in packaging like this.

The food scraps we buried are completely gone. There were some healthy weeds feeding from the compost they made.

Here is the different piles of dug up rubbish.
