Scavenger Hunt

Just before half term the children took their learning outside and took part in a Scavenger Hunt. The items they were looking for were all linked to measurement – a stick 10cms long, the smallest stone amongst other things.

The children really enjoyed it, despite the fact that it started raining!

Life Cycles of Plants

This week, the children of Class 12 started their new Science topic called ‘Life Cycles’.  In this topic, they will be learning about the life cycles of amphibians, humans and plants.  To begin the sessions on plants, the children went outside to find examples of flowers and they took photographs of them using iPads.  They could only keep five of the photos that they took and they could only keep the best.  They then cropped and edited these photos to improve them further.  Then they used these photos to name the different parts of the flower.  Later in the week, the children will be using these pictures in an art session in which they will sketch the flowers from these images.

Here are some of the children having fun in the sun and exploring the beautiful gardens of Milford…
