I am a NQT and have a year 1 class and we're about to start our science topic 'growing plants'. I want them to grow something in class that they can actually see. I think I remember growing broad beans with blotting paper (not that I think I have any blotting paper) when I was at school. Has anyone done this? Or would you recommend growing something else? Also I would like them to keep a record of it's growth. Has anyone got any good ideas for a bean diary or something?!?! Thanks!!!
