Saltwell Park Visit

This week, Year 4 has visited Saltwell Park as part of both their Science and Art lessons. In Science, we have been looking at classifying living things by what they look like or by where they live and what they eat. In the park we spotted a huge variety of living things and we talked a lot about the environment they lived in and what they would need to survive there.
In Art we have been sketching leaves, really trying to focus on the detail of the veins and their shape. Whilst we were in the park, we collected some leaves to study and to draw when we got back to school. These should be ready and on display during our open evenings next month.
