We had a great day at RHS Bridgewater. We spent the morning exploring the gardens and admiring the beautiful plants and flowers. The children worked in pairs to identify different blossoms, trees and leaves as well as using the iPads to capture some images that we will use as part of some science themed artwork over the next few weeks.
We then moved to the woodland play we here the children worked in small teams to create dens. It was great to see the communication skills and sharing of ideas as they built their constructions.
After lunch we had a workshop where we investigated plants. The children reviewed what they had previously learnt at schools before using magnifying glasses and microscopes to look closely at different parts of the plant that are used in reproduction. The children then made clones of a mint plant that we have brought back to school and will hopefully see prosper over the next few weeks.
We ended the day with a final tour of the garden and then finished with some time in the woodland play area.
Overall a great day!
