Summer 1 - Scented Garden

Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden.


This half term we’ll find out how to look after plants, ask an expert questions and appreciate the flowers. We’ll enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write stories of our own. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We will learn about the water cycle process and how this impacts the life of plants. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own

‘planting and growing’ action song.               

Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented playdough. 

We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational
drawings and press real flowers to use in collages.

At the end of our project we will have become plant experts!
