Our topic this term is entitled '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.
We have started Term 4 with our exciting learning lift-off all about plants. The children have set up an investigation to see what conditions are needed to grow cress in the best way. We have also started to grow some beans; this will be a competition to see which table look after their plant the most and grow the tallest beanstalk.
