Pond Dipping (24th March 2015)
We enjoyed learning about the different plants and animals that live in our school pond. We collected water samples and used charts to identify the different creatures and plants that we found. We also found lots of frog spawn!
Outdoor Planting (24th March 2015)
We enjoyed planting potatoes, flower and vegetable seeds outdoors. We are going to plant the flowers around the school when they have grown. We also hope to be able to cook with the potatoes and vegetables when they have grown in the summer term. A group of children also worked with Mrs Greenwood to weed the vegetable patch and to plant seeds.
We have been learning about the different things that plants need to grow healthily. We have planted seeds in different locations to help us understand which factors are important for growing healthy plants. We have learned that healthy plants need sunlight, water and soil. The plant that has been growing in Mrs Smith's cupboard is not healthy as it has had very little day light.
Minibeast hunt (18th March 2015)
We enjoyed exploring our Green Wood to see what different minibeasts we could find. We looked under magnifying glasses at the minibeasts before carefully putting them back where we found them.
We had a great day wearing something red for Red Nose Day. We had our faces painted in funny styles! Here are some photographs.
Visiting the Leeds Museum (6th March 2015)
We had a fantastic time visiting the Leeds Museum. In the afternoon we visited the Life on Earth gallery and enjoyed seeing all of the different animals. We recorded the animals that found in a book. We were not allowed to take photographs of the stuffed animals but we dressed up in different animal costumes. Here are some photos.
How healthy plants grow investigation
We have planted seeds to help us to understand the different things that seeds need to grow into a healthy plant. We decided that we would plant seeds in the light, dark with and without water. We will keep a plant diary to record how our seeds grow.
