Outdoor Learning Afternoon 1

This term we’ll be having some outdoor learning afternoons.  This week we planted seeds, made predictions, sketched plants and talked about ‘living things’.

We have decided to see what things will make a difference to how the plants grow.  Some will have no light, some will have no water and some will have no air.  We will also grow some plants outside and some inside.  We have a special box with a window that will allow is to see how roots grow.

We had some great discussions about living things and asked the question… ‘is a seed alive?’

Holly taught us about the magic that happens with seeds and taught us a new word…. Germinate.

For a seed to germinate it needs a WOW!!
