Growing Together

Year 1 Hillier Gardens Visit

In the first week back after the Easter break, the children in year 1 enjoyed a fantastic day out at Hillier Gardens. The trip was organised to support the children’s science learning about growing. During the day the children took part in a number of activities and enjoyed spending time outdoors in the sunshine. They took part in an art activity, collecting petals, leaves and other fallen objects to create a class piece of artwork hidden in the trees. They also enjoyed visiting the herb garden to learn about the different herbs that can be grown. The highlight of the day was taking part in pond dipping! There were squeals and shouts of delight when newts were spotted and we all enjoyed learning about the dragonfly larvae. A brilliant day was had by all. Special thanks go to all of the parents who were able to support on the day and to the HSA who this trip was generously funded by.
