We have been finding out about William Caxton who invented the printing press. We discovered how difficult it was to write with a quill pen and how much quicker it was to print.

We had a lovely time looking for wild and garden flowers on our 'Plant Detective' walk. We were able to identify lots of the flowers we found and say whether we thought they were garden plants or wild plants.



We have been exploring Andy Goldsworthy's pictures where he uses natural resources to make pictures which he then photographs. We tried to make similar pictures using resources we could find in our classroom. We were really proud of the results!
