As part of our plants topic we have planted our own vegetables. We didn't let the snow put us off but we have started the seedlings off indoors to protect them from the cold weather. A big thank you to the parents who donated compost, soil, plants and their time to allow us to have this wonderful opportunity for hands on learning.
We also built our own bug houses, using natural materials to create shelters where bugs can live without interference. We had to do lots of thinking about how to pack the materials in tightly so that they didn't fall out and the bugs would have lots of small spaces to crawl into.
We explored the sense of taste by trying out different foods to see if they were sweet, salty, sour or bitter.
