Year 5 Allotment

26th February 2019

During their engage week for their new topic ‘Allotment’, Year 5 took their learning outside and learnt the difference between biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials. They collected a range of materials, predicted what will happen to them over time when buried and then placed them underground. They are looking forward to unearthing their findings at the end of their topic and discovering whether their predictions are correct.

Year 5 have also been planting seeds and have taken ownership over looking after them, ensuring they are placed in areas which allow them to grow properly and that they are being watered daily.
