Science – Visit to Bearwood Road Allotments

On Wednesday 3rd May, 1S and 1L visited Bearwood Allotments. We had lots of fun exploring and learning about plants and soil. Stephen Taylor – from West Midlands Farm Discovery – The Country Trust – helped us learn more about planting seeds and what plants need to grow. We planted radish and mangetout / pea seeds, explored the plants already growing like strawberries, lettuce, radishes and also herbs like mint, sage and chives to name but a few.

RE – The Lost Son

This half term, we have been looking at the parable of ‘The Lost Son’. A parable is a simple story told to teach a lesson about how to behave. Jesus told many parables and these can be found in the Gospels in the Christian holy book called the Bible. Here is a clip showing the story.

What was Jesus trying to help people understand with this story?

Do any other stories from any other religions have messages like this?
