This week the children have been learning about the adaptations of drought tolerant plants, and how to identify some of the flora and fauna found within the school grounds.
Identifying trees by their leaves
The children used an identification wheel to compare leaf shapes and identify some of the many species of trees in the Vinehall grounds.
The Year 4 children visited the Vinehall pond armed with nets and buckets to see what they could find.
Filling the fixed beds in the newly refurbished De Beer garden was the perfect opportunity for the children to smell, taste and touch different herbs.
