Our Science topic this term is ‘Plants’.
This week we are thinking about garden plants. There is a presentation below which talks about different garden plants. Perhaps you recognise some of them? There is also a selection of garden plant photos you can look at. Maybe you have seen some of these plants in your garden or in other gardens when you go for a walk? Design your own garden and draw some garden plants or flowers. Can you label these plants? You could use the garden design template below. Additionally, you could complete the flower labelling activity which has been set on Purple Mash for you.
Our topic this term is called ‘In Grandma’s Day’. In this topic we will be looking at changes within living memory. Our first focus is on toys.
This week you are going to look at some toys from the 20th century and compare them to toys from today. If you have a teddy bear at home can you compare it to the one in the photo (in the presentation)? What is the same about them? What is different? Have a look through the presentation below at older toys. You can choose one of the comparison activity sheets below to do.
