This morning, Year 2 have spent the morning exploring plants for our outdoor science day. We begun with revisiting the skills we need as Scientists and we looked back at previous learning about Jane Caulden, a botanist. After spending time using our white hats to share all the facts we knew, we looked at the parts of the plant and the jobs each part had. We used our outdoor area to record what we had found.
We continued after break to explore the plants outdoors. We used 3 out of 5 senses to explore this and the children showed great leadership by being positive communicators when leading their groups.
We ended the morning making recycled planters. We discussed the importance of using recycled materials. The children were amazed at how small the Oregano seeds were. We look forward to seeing them grow over the next few weeks.
