Adventures at Harlow Carr Gardens

Today we have had a great trip to Harlow Carr Gardens to support our learning about plants in science.  In the morning we had a plant workshop.  We found out about the different parts of a flower and their roles.  After that we played a team game, where we pretended to be bees pollinating flowers.  Then we took a stroll round the gardens and collected different parts of the flowers to add to a ‘scrap book’ page.  When we got back to the classroom we labelled the different parts that we had found.

We enjoyed lunch in the lodge, before heading back out to explore the gardens in our groups.  Surprisingly, we found the playground and I was really impressed with the team game of hide and seek tig that the children decided to play!  What a fabulous day.  Well done Year 3!
