Summer Term

Perfect Plants

This term our topic is Perfect Plants. It is a science based topic based on our learning this term of light and plants. In English we will continue the topic by writing a story based on the book The Flower Man and writing a non chronological report on plants. Please read our topic web for details on all our learning for this term.

In Science we have been investigating light this term and have made our very own dark cave! In this area we have been able to investigate how we need light to be able to see, how certain colours are seen easier with minimal light and how reflective some materials are.
