which seeds will grow first?

We have watched Tim Peak going up into space on the rocket and Kingfisher class (years 3 and 4) is really excited and happy that the first British man has successfully landed on the moon. We felt so excited about the first British person taking part in this adventure that we did many projects on Tim Peak and we did some writing too. We liked watching the launch of the rocket and my favourite video was when Tim showed us how to drink water in space. In that video I liked it when the water just floated in a ball. If we did that, it would just spray on the floor not float in a ball, because in space there is no gravity but on earth there is.

When I personally heard we were going to do an experiment to compare the growth of seeds that have been in space and those which have not I felt very excited! One thing is that we don't know which seeds are which because they have not told us. So when we do get the seeds we need to number them, eg. 1B to 10B, so we can report any observations we make about the individual seed growth. To make it a fair test we need to have them in the same place and give them the same amount of water. We as a class were chosen to do this, but it isn't just this school, it is many other schools doing it as well, so all the data that is collected will be given to Tim Peak.

Now all we need to do is wait for the seeds!
