Our Cornerstones project this term is call 'Scented Garden!'. During the project we’ll be discovering the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. This half term, we’ll visit Norfolk Lavender and investigate all the wonderful things growing in the great outdoors. We’ll find out how to look after plants, ask the experts questions and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write an information book about plants, follow instructions, enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write stories of our own.
Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages.
At the end of our project, we will have become plant experts! We’ll create a presentation about plants, share the information books that we have made and design a fantasy garden. All of these wonderful learning experiences will help us to answer this projects Big Question: What can be found growing in the ground?
