Walker Primary School Inspiring a love of learning in a supportive community


In this unit children have the opportunity to closely study plants and trees in the natural environment, taking measurements and making observational drawings. Children observe plants as they grow and record their observations and measurements. Children begin to learn about plants we eat, and understand that farming involves creating the right conditions for food crops to grow.
