Spring term 2015

Hedgepeckers class.
Spring 2015
Down at the Bottom of the Garden.

Our topic this term is called “Down at the Bottom of the Garden”. We will be finding out about the plants and animals found in a garden. We will learn how to identify different plants and trees and investigate the conditions needs for healthy growth.
During the term we will find out about the life of Bob Flowerdew and Humphry Repton and their influence on gardening. During Design and Technology lessons we will explore different mini beast homes and make our own for our school grounds. For our challenge we will be designing and making herb growing kits. We will have weekly cooking lessons developing our skills of chopping, mixing and blending.
In Art we will look at the work of Frances Doherty and will create our own flower and vegetable sculptures from clay as well as mini-beast sculptures from different materials.
Please look again later in the term to see photos of our work.
