Planting beetroot, carrots and beans in our mini allotment!

The children planted beetroot, carrots and beans in our mini allotment this afternoon. They weeded the land, dug small holes, watered the area and made sure the seeds were sewn in a straight line. Hopefully it will be a success!

Allotment Visit

The children had a fantastic time at the allotment this morning. They spent the morning taking part in three activities in small groups. Firstly they had a guided tour by Mrs Fields who owns a plot. They asked her lots of interesting questions. Secondly, the children completed a quiz on what was in the allotments and why it was important. Finally, the children had the opportunity to use a map and the Council's inspection sheets to rate each allotment plot. Thanks to Mrs Barker for arranging this for us. The children were all really well behaved and had a great time.

Our topic for Spring 1 has been 'Beast Creator.' We have been learning about mini beasts, including their habitats, food chains and characteristics. We carried out a mini beast hunt around the grounds of school and set up a woodlice experiment in the classroom, where we created different habitats to see where they best liked to stay. Noah also brought in his Giant African Land Snail for us to hold. We had a visitor in our class over the last few weeks too, Mr O'Hare was taking some of the lessons. In literacy we have been looking at myths and explanation texts. We will try to publish some n the website when they are complete!
