Our school is situated in such a beautiful place! Just outside our school gate is a lovely, quiet road which hosts a plethora of wild flowers. These flowers are currently enjoying their moment in the sun before the deciduous trees overhead develop their canopy.
We took note of the petals, describing their colour, shape and size and the number of petals. We also examined the stems and foliage. We found a huge variety with many shades of yellow, pink, purple and white.
When we returned to class, we used iPads, Chromebooks and laptops to identify all of our discoveries.
- Forget-me-not (field)
- Lesser Celandine
- Opposite leaved golden saxifrage
- Common dog violet
- Cow Parsley
We also found the foliage of the wood anemone but there’s no sign of their flowers just yet!
