This week we worked together to plant all of our seeds from Incredible Edibles! We now have such a variety of lovely fruits and vegetables growing in our garden. We sowed strawberries, potatoes, chives, lettuce, spinach and turnips. We will be busy caring for them over the coming weeks and can’t wait to watch them grow!

Spring has Sprung! ~ ASD Class

Today we were lucky to observe, not one, but three Giant African Land Snails! We discussed their size, their shells and what they like to eat. Afterwards, we made our way to the Outdoor Classroom to have a look at the hundreds of tadpoles in the pond. There, we discussed the lifecycle of the frog and took some time to bask in the sunshine on the benches.

Preparation
We developed a number of questions and put them on clip boards.
In our research we discovered that there are a number of types of bridges including arch bridges and beam bridges.
Observation
We observed that Harold’s Cross Bridge is an arch shaped bridge
while Portobello Bridge is beam shaped.
Portobello Bridge has a lock. The ropes can be released to open
the lock gates and increase the water levels and allow boats through.
