  • Which came first, the seed or the plant?

During this term, Year 3 will be flexing their green fingers and growing some plants from seeds.  We will also look at different parts of plants and flowers and do some creative floral art work.  Our English work will be based on instructional writing, which we will also link in with computing to create photo stories.
