Spring Walk for Year 1
Children in Y1 were undeterred by the rain last Thursday, and enjoyed a late spring walk to Pittville Park to investigate changes since their last visit in March. The trip was planned as part of their ongoing science learning about seasonal changes. The loss of the crocus and daffodils was mourned, but we recorded an abundance of different spring flowers. We took particular note of the flowers on the trees and were surprised to see flowering holly and horse chestnut trees which we most usually recognise by their fruits and berries. Those most observant among us also spotted a variety of mini beasts which we accurately recorded and drew. The children were all very well behaved and the local volunteer group working in the park were very interested in the observations the children were making and were keen to forge links with the school.
