Creating the Learning Garden

Message from the Chairwoman:

Our aim is to make our learning garden interactive for all children to explore. 

 

 Using augmented reality, the students are busy creating short films to superpose on various parts of the garden.

The aim was to use our school council budget to help plant and grow flowers, herbs and other plants to help beautify and expand the learning garden. 

 We have to make sure all our plants are watered regularly - especially the tomatoes! 

 

 We have to watch out for slugs!!!!

This term the Student Council have been thinking about how to teach science in class. The council members divided themselves up into different Key Stages and designed, planned and taught a series of lessons, during our regular science sessions. 

Pedro taught Class 3 about how light is reflected off certain surfaces. He came up with the ideas of getting the children to create periscopes, so they could physically see the effects of reflection. Myrinda taught the class about the colour spectrum. She used DVDs to show the children how light is actually made up of 7 different colours - which are normally invisible to the human eye. 

 

Jo, Daisy Corey and Jack had to teach Class 1.

Jack and Corey decided to teach them about friction, using cars and ramps. They wanted the children to discover which surface would create the most friction. 

Daisy and Layla wanted to teach Class 1 about materials (so it linked to their science topic). They came up with a challenge. They decided to give Class 1 a range of materials and see who could create the strongest, most durable bag. 

The winning bag was Will's, with a whopping 7KG!
