The challenge of our 'what grows in my city' enquiry, was to work as a team to make a tray garden. We had to think about what we needed to put in our gardens such as shelter for minibeasts, a pond for frogs, trees to provide oxygen and flowers for bees. The children were great team players who made fantastic gardens. Thank you for providing the children with so many amazing resources to make their gardens and for coming to see them.
Something very strange happened this morning when we arrived at school! In the hall, we discovered some police tape surrounding rocks, stones, sticks, cones and a note. The note was from a little boy who needed our help as he had become stranded on the moon and did not know how to get back to Earth. Back in class, we read the story 'The Way Back Home' and we worked in teams to build space ships, rockets and flying saucers to take the little boy back home. Over the next few weeks, we will be doing lots of writing based on this story.
We are enjoying our new enquiry 'what grows in my city?' We went on a walk around the school to identify things growing in our school. As artists, we did some observational drawings of plants and trees focusing on shading, tone and colour. We have been learning about the life cycle of plants and role played growing from a seed into a plant.
