Today Year 1 looked at what the word ‘Growing’ means. We decided that it meant when something gets bigger. We then looked at how worms help our plants and vegetables to grow. The children learnt that the worms produce worm castings which help to feed the plants. We then looked at the three different types of worm: Earth workers, Deep Burrowers and Surface Dwellers.
The children went to explore the allotment area to find the different types of worms. We were very successful.
