Science: What's at the bottom of our pond

This term's project is What's at the bottom of our pond: the sequel.  In Year 4 we had a project to transform the pond area in which we were promised help to make a new pond that didn't then materialise.  So, we are going to finish the job ourselves.

This is the learning sequence for the project.  As much as possible will be in school, digging holes, sketching what we can see, making observations, taking photographs, planting, etc.  We'll record what we've done on this page.

15th June 2020.  Our learning at the start of this week is to understand the lifecycle of plants and how flowers are pollinated.  See this section for the week's key vocabulary and question.
