These are our proud walls – children's work is celebrated on display in our classrooms.
In our enquiry, "What grows near me?" We started with a seed investigation.
We planted beans in clear cups so we can watch how they grow. I wonder what part of the plant will grow first!
As part of our enquiry this term we have been Artists.  We made observational drawings of a flower and sketched this into a polystyrene square and then using printing paint we made a print on a white sheet.
