Invertebrate hunt

We have been doing some data on invertebrates this week in class 6 and today we went on a hunt to see which insects we could find, we checked the planting area in the school and went up to the forest to see what we could find in there, after making a tally chart we came back to class to write it up neatly in our topic books and do the total amount of different insects we found and which category they went in.

Planting

This afternoon we have done some planting, we are hoping for our plants to grow so we have more to add to our plant sale, we have planted beetroot, spring onions and lettuce.

We are going to take it in turns to water them daily.

We have been talking about the weather in French, with our peers we had a conversation in French about today’s weather, it was great fun trying this!
