The Story of Zechariah

Today we started our work on Advent - the build up and preparation for Christmas. Part of our unit of work was to explore the story of Zechariah, John the Baptist's father, and his reaction to the 'Good News' bestowed upon him by the messenger Gabriel.

What would your reaction have been to receiving such good news? Would you have doubted what was said? Would you have immediately believed the news shared?

Time Lapse of Pea Shoot / Root Growth

Time-lapse of a pea plant growing from seed, showing both the shoot and root system. Late in the video, the plant loses its water supply and wilts/desiccates, but bounces back once water is re-added. Timelapse is at 20 min per frame, 15fps. That means that 1 second of video is 5 hours in real time.
