  • Growing Plants in Science

    Published 11/05/22, by Sarah Skelton

    The children are enjoying growing sunflowers and runner beans! They water the plants every day and measure their plants as they grow. We have been learning to name parts of a plant, labelling their own drawings.
    They took part in a leaf hunt this week, identifying different trees in the school grounds.
    They also have a keen interest in the weather. We check the weather each day, and they regularly check the thermometer we have in the outdoor area.

  • The start of Science Week

    Published 16/03/22, by Sarah Skelton

    To start Science week we went on a Spring Walk. We discussed signs of spring before we went, and what we might see. The children were delighted to see all the signs we discussed (all except baby lambs). This led to an afternoon of painting blossom and daffodil pictures, and recording Signs of Spring on a recording sheet and writing a sentence about what the children saw.


    We have been discussing the weather and looking at the temperature using the thermometer in our outdoor area.
    Here are some of the pictures of the Signs of Spring we saw yesterday. We will add the photos to our Seasons display in the classroom.
