On Tuesday, Year 2 visited Victoria Park to explore and sketch flowers and plants. Last week in class, we planted our own cress seeds in soil and have been observing them as they grow. The biodiversity of the park environment enabled us to see many different types of plants and flowers, observe their structure and sketch them to support our writing later in the week.
We explored the park area and discovered flowers such as: daffodils, bluebells, blossom on trees as well as tiny daisies growing on the grass. The flower garden provided visitors with a wonderful arrangement of colourful flowers that added splashes of colour to green areas. As we explored the park further we discovered more flower beds in different areas of the park and we discussed what these plants would need to grow.
After eating lunch, we explored the park further for plants and flowers, before returning back to school. Year 2 will be using their sketches to inspire their writing for their recount of this trip in Big Write on Friday.
