Our topic this term is The Garden of England.
As spectacular Scientists we will consider, ‘Do all plants require the same conditions to grow?’ What can we discover about growing plants? Plants have been growing for thousands of years and during this time people have been enjoying them as food as well as appreciating their beauty. The earliest civilisations ate the plants that were growing around them; today we not only eat some plants but grow plants for a hobby and to look at too! It’s not only people who enjoy eating plants – Peter Rabbit loves them too! We will learn all about him in our class text. As great geographers we will explore through carrying out our own fieldwork studies, investigating; How many birds visit the garden every day?, What animals live under stones in the garden?, What flowers do bees like best? We will then consider ways to share and present these findings.
Year 2 have had their learning lift off this week.
We looked at seeds and bulbs and thought about what they might grow into.
Look at what some of us predicted.
“I think the black seeds will grow into watermelons because they have black seeds inside.”
“The white seeds will be tomatoes because when you cut open a tomato they have white seeds in.”
We also designed and made flower pots. Next week we will be planting sunflower seeds in them to bring home and watch grow.
