Science:

We are now starting a new Science topic on ‘Plants’. Over the next few weeks, the children will be working on identifying common plants, including garden plants, wild plants and trees with a focus on deciduous and evergreen trees. They will be describing the basic structure of plants including roots, stem, leaves and flowers.

 

This week have a go at making your own flower including the roots, stem, leaves and flowers. Can you label the parts of the plant? Use whatever you have around the house or from the garden to make your picture. There are some examples and resources below to help you:

*Optional project*

If you would like to, you could plant some seeds or beans in the garden or a plastic cup. Have a think about what it will need to grow and look after it over the next few weeks. You can keep a diary of your plant as it starts to grow, take pictures, measure it or write about it. Below is an example of a plant diary that you could use:

Topic:

Our new topic this term is called ‘In Grandma’s Day’. In this topic we will be looking at changes within living memory. The children will be getting information from a range of sources and comparing new with old. They will also be asked to look at timelines and discussing how we know if something is old or new. Our first focus will be on toys.

 

This week can you speak to members of your family and find out what toys they used to play with when they were younger? You could ask your parents or give your grandparents a call. Write some questions down that you would like to ask them.

 

Can you write down what they used to play with? Do they have any pictures they could send you or show you of their old toys? Use the internet to see if you can find pictures of some of these old toys. You can use the templates below to help you:
