How does your garden grow?
This half term we will be learning all about the trees and plants we might see growing in our local area. We will learn how to label the different parts of plants and trees and the names of some common plants and trees. We will be learning the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and the Enormous Turnip. We will be learning about the work of two famous artists and lots more.
Please have a look at the link below which will take you to this half term's theme web.
In maths we are learning about measurements. This week we are looking at length.
On Monday 23rd February we heard a funny noise on the roof. We went to investigate. We couldn't see anything outside but when we went back into the classroom we found some huge footprints on the floor. Teighan thought they might belong to a giant because we are learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. Then we found a letter from The Giant. It asked us to find objects that were longer and shorter than his footprint.
Here are some photos of the objects we found.
On Tuesday 24th February we ordered leaves from the longest to the shortest and then placed them on to a beanstalk.
This week we are learning about how much is in a container. We call this volume.
On Tuesday we looked at different containers and made predictions about which we thought would hold the most water. We then tested each container.
We have set an investigation up to see if seeds can grow on different things.
We planted cress seeds on sawdust, cotton wool, soil and sand.
On Tuesday 24th February we started an investigation to see what cress grew on the best. We all made a prediction.
We placed the same amount of cress seeds on cotton wool, sand, soil and sawdust. Then we watered each one with the same amount of water. Then we placed them all on the windowsill.
