The children have been learning all about plants in our science lessons, including the different parts of plants and their functions, the different types of roots and photosynthesis. In today's lesson we learnt about soil nutrients. We have also been learning outside, on the school grounds, on a few occasions which the children have really enjoyed. They were able to look more closely at roots and identify different types of roots. Today the children were 'plant doctors' as they diagnosed which nutrients different plants were deficient in by examining the symptoms of each plant!
