PostHeaderIcon Our Favourite Plants

For the month of September Room 15 have been learning all about different plants. We conducted experiments to see the function of the stem in a plant. We also completed a scavenger hunt where we found out lots of interesting information about different plants. Did you know that the coconut is the largest seed in the world?

Last week we took advantage of the nice weather and had our art lesson outside. Our school yard is full of beautiful plants. We all chose our favourite plant and drew it as best we could. We tried to include as much detail as possible. Our pictures are now hanging in the hallway outside our room. Come up and see if you recognise any of these plants from our yard.

Today we created some optical illusion art which was very confusing but good fun! Take a look and see if you get confused!
