Spring Term 1 (2020-2021)

During the first week back after the winter holidays, the students who were in school were able to plant trees for our REACH activity. We dug a hole big enough for the roots of our sapling and then filled up the empty space with nutritious compost. It had been a snowy and very chilly day but we luckily the ground wasn't too frozen!
Scientific drawings of plant life.

Friday 15th January 2021

This REACH activity was chosen to enhance their knowledge of nature and their surroundings and understand the structure of plant life, whilst building their creative skills. St. David’s class observed the flowers distinguishing features and discussed the details that we had noticed.

 We looked closely at the colouring of the flowers, the differences in certain species and how they are structured. After our observation, each student created a scientific cross section of their chosen flower. They focused on creating a realistic illustration with beautiful shading and detail.
