We’ve been out and about in the sunshine exploring the school grounds and the wider village to find examples of seeds. We know that plants disperse their seeds using clever tricks to spread them far and wide. They use the wind, water, catch a ride on an animal, burst or shake, drop and roll or disguise the seed in a juicy berry.
We were especially looking out for berries. Some are only fit for birds and other animals to eat. A few special ones are good for humans to cook and then eat! We picked some blackberries, rowan berries and hawthorn berries as well as a few rose hips. We will be using these to make some Autumn Jelly.
We came back into school and sorted our finds. Finally we made careful observational drawings of our treasures.
