We have had a fun week with growing and weighing objects.
Our caterpillars arrived this week and we are looking forward to seeing them grown, the children have started their caterpillar diaries ready to observe the changes. They are getting bigger already.
In maths we have been using the scales to balance planting objects with bean seeds, the children have been looking at objects that are light and heavy.
In language we have been reading the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ they have made a story board about the story, they did a fabulous job with this and they look great. They sorted sentences into order and used story buddy on the iPad to create the story.
Topic we have been sorting the lifecycle of a butterfly and investing what ours will need to grow.
We have been planting cress and we look forward to seeing them grow and tasting them.
next week we will be thinking creatively and imagining what our magic bean would grown into.
In maths we will be making symmetry and finding the lines of symmetry.
In our topic we will be investigating beans and what they need to grow and what will happen if we take away something that they need.
