Year 5 has been working in the kitchen garden, growing peas and beans in the classroom and inquiring into the biological and environmental considerations to be taken into account when growing plants. Some of their questions were answered this morning over Skype by Laurel who’s a plant expert and happens to live in the UK!
When I blogged last year about the visitor from India, it was our first experience of this kind of interaction. We are becoming more used to the idea of flattening the classroom walls. It’s so easy! We need to do more of this kind of thing 🙂
