This week, we have been learning.....

UTW- Planting and Growing

This week we have been learning what plants need to grow and how to plant seeds. We followed instructions to plant a seed and help it grow. We planted broad bean seeds in the hope to grow our own beanstalks. We discussed how to care for them and will check on them every day. We are excited to see whose beanstalk grows the tallest! 

Literacy- Jack and The Beanstalk

This week, we enjoyed reading the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We read and compared lots of different versions and talked about the similiarities and differences. We talked about the characters in the story and decided to do our drawing club on the giant. We talked about words to describe him and then drew our giants. We then wrote a sentence to describe him.

Forest Schools

This week was our third forest school session. Holly set us a challenge to find an interesting leaf and something we would consider a ‘nature treasure’. We went searching and then shared our finds around the campfire. We then enjoyed a range of activities including the hammock, swing, hammering, printing, leaf soap making, den building and digging. We also enjoyed a rather yummy hot chocolate!
