Shield Bugs!

Look at this shield bug that gardening club found exploring our garden.   It has really sharp mouth parts which it uses to suck sap from plants.  It's proper name is pentatomoidea!

Look at this beautiful musk mallow...

...peeking out from inside the bug hotel.  These are growing wild and there seem to be more every day.

Garden Gang - Harvesting Herbs

Today we picked some of the lovely herbs in our garden, Rosemary, Thyme, Lemon Balm and Chives.  (More about these coming soon).  Year 3 planted these back in September so they all had a little bag to take home.

This flower is currently looking gorgeous in our garden!   We think it's called a Frilly Poppy, what a great name!

There are lots of different types of poppy.  The rarest and toughest is called the Arctic poppy, I expect you can guess where that grows!

Year 2 and the Water Cycle

In Walnut Class, we have been learning about the water cycle.  This is the video we have been watching to help our learning

The Water Cycle

We are posting this video in our lesson! :)


Year 2 were in charge of watering the school garden last week so we started to think about where the water comes from and where it goes.  Here we are making our own water cycles.
