Year 6 Trip to St Leonards Gardens

Year 6 spent the morning in St Leonards Gardens, enjoying the range of structural plants and flowers (yes, there were still some despite it being the middle of November!). Here are some photos of them hard at work in their sketch books.  Watch this space to see how their drawings will become ‘big art’ this term, inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe.

 

Year 6 trip to Alexandra Park

Year 6 visited the park to look at native trees.  As part of their work, they were measuring leaves, working out how old the trees are having measured their girth, and approximating the heights of some of the trees.  They also took bark and leaf rubbings to make comparisons with the Amazon Rainforest, which they are studying this term.
