Flowers and Frogs
It has been a very busy half term in Heron Class – our science topic was Lifecycles; we started with looking at the lifecycles of plants and flowers. We dissected a flower and looked at all the different components. After naming the different parts and finding out how they played a part in a flower’s lifecycle, we linked the subject of botany to our artwork. We created botanical watercolours in the style of Elizabeth Blackwell and Peter Brown- Famous botanical artists.
Later we moved onto studying the lifecycles of animals. We looked at the lifecycles of birds, butterflies and amphibians.
We made the lifecycle of a frog out of clay and then in our English work we wrote explanation texts to explain how frogspawn transforms into frogs.
