Science in Elm!

In science we have been looking at some of the Year 1 science knowledge that they missed in the Summer term. Most had good knowledge of the basic parts of plants and the job that each part does.

We have been making the most of the good weather to get outside and explore what seeds we can find around the school. We collected apples, pears, berries and grass seeds. (I cheated and bought the peppers and tomatoes!)

This afternoon, the children all had a go at sketching the fruit with the seeds inside. We had great fun and learnt to do observational drawings. We even talked about how some seeds are spread by animals pooping which led to lots of funny stories from the children!
