Water It!

This term our science topic is about living things, 
specifically plants. 
We are looking at how plants need and use water; 
how living things (plants) are suited to their habitat;
and how to group plants by their features.
We visited three ponds to look at the plants that are living there.
A reed pond

An open water pond. (Can you see the rain?)
A swampy pond.
Here are some of the plants we saw:

Now some classes have their own miniature ponds in our shaded bush area.

Do you recognise some of our pond plants?
Do you have a pond? What is in your pond?

Are You Scared, Mrs McKenzie?

Mrs McKenzie has never been on a hydroslide. 
Do you think she will be brave enough to try after reading these letters?

What else have the B4 writers been up to?

Have you ever been down a hydroslide?
What would you say to Mrs McKenzie to persuade her to go down the hydroslide?
