Y5 at Dilston Physic Garden

4th October 2019

In order to explore their class reading book, Year 5 visited Dilston Physic Garden where they enjoyed a magical day experiencing authentic Hogwarts lessons of potions and herbology just like Harry Potter!  Each plant in a physic garden has the power to heal or keep you healthy.  They learned all about the  science of how the plants work and which chemicals act on which body system. Using the plants from the garden, they designed a healing lip balm infused with cherry which they then decorated and brought home to use.  The children also took part in a botanical brain booster quiz and had a chance to discover the beautiful garden. The children had a wonderful time learning in the sunshine and fresh air.
