Term 5 Learning Challenge

This term we are scientists and we will be investigating the big question:

How do plants grow and stay healthy?

 

 

 

Through exploring this topic we will also find the answers to other questions such as:

 

What are the plants and trees called?  

 

What are the different parts of a tree called?

 

In Art we will be finding out about the artist Wassily Kandinsky. 

 

"Everything starts with a dot" Kadinsky

 

 

The children will be investigating colour and using Kandinsky's artwork for their own inspiration.

 

 

We have so much to learn and so many questions to answer. To help us answer them all we are using our “Ask it baskets”.


We're looking forward to helping you find the answers to all of your fantastic questions!
