Down at the Bottom of my Garden!
Our final topic of the Spring term is 'Down at the Bottom of my Garden'.
We began this topic with a 'Dig and Grow' day and we all thoroughly enjoyed getting very muddy!
We became plant detectives and identified a range of plants and trees within our school grounds, we worked as a team to create a 'Welliepede' with Mrs Lowings and we also learnt name the parts of a flowering plant. It was great fun!
As part of this topic we also learnt a lot about different animals that we might find down at the bottom of the garden. We learnt about how different animals can be grouped according to what they look like and where they live.
We also found out about what different animals eat and how they are known as either carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.
In literacy, we collected all this information together and wrote our own information book page about an animal of our choice!

In art, we looked closely at how different artists used pencil to create textures and tones. We then used graded pencils to explore this for ourselves before finally carrying out an observational drawing of a plant.
Finally, a huge thank you to everybody that grew their cress seeds over the half term holiday! The decorated pots all looked wonderful and Mrs Greensmith had the very tricky job of picking our class winners.
