Today we continued to work towards the Bronze level of our Farming and Countryside award. We looked at lots of different seeds and talked about differences and similarities. We can now identify a sunflower and a broad bean seed. We all went on a leaf hunt. We discovered that there are lots of different trees in our school environment and used a leaf identification chart to help us find out what they are called. We have been learning about the properties of shapes in maths this week so this new vocabulary has really helped us talk about the shapes of the leaves and seeds. We all planted our own sunflower seed and learned about what they need to grow. We looked at different fruit and vegetables and learned about how to categorise them.
We are well on our way to achieve the Bronze award by the end of the year. Which level of the award are you working towards?
