This half term is year 3’s turn for outdoor learning in the edible garden, which fits perfectly with our science learning on plants!

Today was a beautiful afternoon for it and we got to see and water the plants, explore the plant beds and got our hands muddy. Here are some things that we learnt:

“Leaves need sunlight, they absorb the sunlight and use it to make some food.”


“Earthworms are good for the soil because they eat rotten leaves.”


“Plants get thirsty so you need to water them and they grow. The roots drink the water.”
