A number of weeks ago, we planted a variety of different vegetables as part of our Science topic (life cycles) and Creative Curriculum topic (WW2 - Dig For Victory). The time had come to plant out into the garden.
Year 4 spent the Spring term learning about the Inca Empire.
They learnt about the sun god Inti and made a recreation of his mask.
The children were shown a variety of interpretations of his mask, and were able to design and create their own.
Year 1 made the most of the fantastic weather today. We worked in teams to locate signs of the season changing. We used our tick list to find blossom, buds, birds and seedlings to name a few.
