Year 2/3 had a fantastic day at the Botanic Gardens in Leicester. The children got to see a huge range of plants from all around the world. We were particularly impressed by the giant redwood and the amazing cacti - not to mention the enormous fish in the lake! We took part in several different activities including planting our own cress and discovering the properties and uses of herbs. The children were beautifully behaved and really impressed everyone with their knowledge about plants. They made us very proud!
