Sprouting Success!

The Year 3 children have been learning how to bed, grow and look after plants. Everyone had the opportunity to plant some daffodil bulbs and now they will have the responsibility to look after them, water them and help them grow.

After planting the daffodils, the children used their gardening experience in English to write a set of instructions about how to plant bulbs. The aim was to make short, clear instructions with clear commands and time words. Have a look at Chloe’s example, has she used the correct features? Please comment.

Everyone had the opportunity to plant some lettuce and now they will have the responsibility to look after them, water them and help them grow.

Growing Plants

Year 3 have been learning all about plants this term. To see what the children have learnt over the past few weeks, Mr Cluett’s class were given a challenge. They were split into groups and each given a plant topic. Each group had to create an information poster on their topic and then present it to the class. The topics were leaves, roots, how to grow plants, photosynthesis and flowers.

Have a look at their wonderful posters…

Can you come up with anymore fascinating plant facts of your own?
