How does your garden grow?
Welcome back to an incredibly busy Summer Term!
We ended Term 4 and 'Fantastic Families' with a wonderful trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. We ventured into the depths of the woodland and played a variety of games and learnt more about some of the special trees there.
After lunch, we were very brave and went off in search of the Gruffalo and other characters from the story, it was a great way to conclude our topic.
Class 5 are very excited about our new topic 'How does your garden grow?' It is one of two under the main title of 'Global Gardens'. We cannot wait to get out and about in the village and learn about gardens in our locality. We will be taking trips to the allotments and also planting some of our favourite flowers.
