Festival Garden Trip
Year 1 enjoyed a fantastic day at Otterspool’s ‘Festival Gardens’ to support our topic of ‘A Gardeners’ World’ and to further enhance our Science topic of ‘Plants’. Before our visit we had to plan our route using Google maps. We had to decide the safest and quickest route then identify the important buildings we would pass on the way. We created a key with symbols of each building.
We were lucky enough to have sunny and dry weather. While we were there we explored the Chinese and Japanese Gardens, identified different plants and decided whether trees were ‘evergreen’ or ‘deciduous’.
