Week 3 in Pod 1

Well done to all the children who have received medals and certificates over the past few weeks.

We have all been busy learning about how plants grow. Rooms 3 and 4 brought fruit and vegetables in for Show and Tell. On Friday we used all our senses to investigate the fruit and vegetables and sorted them into two groups. We found out that all fruit has seeds. That means tomatoes and capsicum are fruit not vegetables. We looked at the vegetables and thought about which part of the plant we eat: root (eg carrot, parsnip), stem (eg asparagus, celery), leaves (eg lettuce, cabbage). Millie brought in a purple carrot! Marley brought in a pomegranate and we ate the seeds inside.

Such interesting fruit and vegetables: gooseberries and redcurrants



We thought these were all fruit.

We thought these were vegetables.
We cut open the capsicum and saw seeds - that means it is a fruit.
Tomatoes have seeds too!

A pomegranate has lots of seeds inside - so yummy to eat!
