Year 1s- Bulbs 


The children had lots of fun looking at the bulbs.

Planting daffodils 


The children had a fantastic time planting their own daffodils. 

The children used compost to carefully plant the bulbs in their own plant pots.


We are looking forward to watching them grow over the next few months. 

The children went on a hunt to find evergreen and deciduous trees. The children could identify and explain the difference between the trees. They had lots of fun looking for them around school. 


The Year 1 children went on a Autumn walk to see what they could find. The children noticed that the leaves were changing colour and falling off the trees. They also discussed the lightness and darkness of the days and how the weather has changed. ​​​​​​
