Year 3 Trip to Wakehurst Place

Year 3 went on an exciting Science trip to Wakehurst Place. After a rainy start, the children spent a lovely day exploring the beautiful grounds at Wakehurst place. They all had a wonderful time and it was a fantastic start to our Science topic. The children got the opportunity to study a sun flower through the different stages of its growth. They learnt about Pollination and how a seed grows into a plant. They also learnt about the parts and functions of a plant as well as photosynthesis. The children also got the opportunity to examine the plants and seeds they had collected on their walk. They were taught how to use the microscopes and were able to look really closely at what they had found. The excitement and amazement was fabulous
