The school garden plays an important role in our school where the children can experience first hand and learn about growing plants from seeds and bulbs. We are able to then cook with the ingredients and learn about where food comes from.
We now have a lunch time Year 2 gardening club who have been working hard planting different vegetables and plants around school. We have just received our Level 3 school gardening award from the Royal Horticultural Society which will entitle us to a £150 worth of plug plants.
In April we invited the poet David Harmer into school to work with all year groups. It was a very exciting day starting with a hilarious assembly where David read his poems and all the children joined in. David then worked with each year group to read poems and help create a poem together. It was a great day!
Year 1 Children have been taking part in the RHS Space Seeds experiment. This was a national experiemnt which Lowfield was very excited to be a part of and to see what would happen to the space seeds.
We believe in giving our children lots of opportunities through having visitors into school and trips to give meaning to their work and a valuable opportunity to experience things first hand. This year visits have included trips to the Botanical garden, Bolsover Castle, Thornbridge, Graves Park, Butterfly house, Eyam, Hathersage and many many more.
The whole school took part in a Science day where we made rocket mice which were launched using different plastic bottles. We had to measure how far they would launch into the air.
Year 2 children have been testing a variety of different materials to see which ones were waterproof or not. They thought about how they could carry out this experiment and then they worked in small groups to test the different materials.
Foundation children have been learning about animals as part of their current topic. We invited in the 'meet a creature' company where we got to see and handle snakes, lizards, African snails, rabbits and even a tortoise. It was great fun and we learnt about what these creatures eat. It was a bit scary for some of us to begin with but we were very brave!
