What a wonderful couple of weeks of learning and exploring we have had!
On top of that it even snowed!
we explored rhyme, wrote our own Spring poems, made nests and eggs,counted chicks and lambs into their pen or coop. We kept a photo diary of our bean seeds and the class one, learnt a bean roots and shoots song, looked at the life cycle of a bean seed, played shop in the garden centre and so so much more! We finished our term with a PSE Easter egg hunt and a service and performance at the church.Happy Easter everyone!
To start our Spring topic we looked at 2 different texts. One was a story called Jasper’s Beanstalks and the other was a poem by Shirley Hughes.
Watch us perform it - we made the actions ourselves to help us remember it.
This week we have been looking at seeds and gardening. We have used trowels, forks and rakes to dig, scoop, scrape and poke the soil and compost.
We sprinkled some wild flower seeds in the soil and grass seeds in our tuff spot.
We also found a couple of worms! We looked under the magnifying glass and watched it wriggle with its wrinkly skin. We could also see inside the worms and saw what they had eaten.
We were really brave and held one gently in our hand. It felt cold and tickled us!
Jasper the cat grew a beanstalk so we made a beanstalk that was as tall as us. Then we counted how many leaves our beanstalks had before using Giant’s footprints and our footprints to measure the length.
We went on a Spring Treasure Hunt looking for signs of Spring. We saw shoots, buds, daffodils, crocuses, birds and squirrels! We even tasted some fresh mint leaves.
We also made a pond, planted grass seeds and watered them and made or painted what we would want to find at the top of a beanstalk.
We sorted, counted and made repeating patterns with different bean seeds.
