Science – Plants

We have begun our new science topic all about Plants. We learnt about how seeds grow and what they need in order to grow. We were then able to plant our own sunflower seeds which we monitor and record the height of each week in our sunflower diary.

English – Grace & Family

This term we have read ‘Grace and Family’. In the text Grace visited the market in Gambia. We tried to recreate this by having our own fruit market. We used our senses to describe the experience. We also got to taste the fruits which was the best part.

We looked at the importance of protection for the body and why it is important to wear a helmet. We know how delicate our skulls are and that when riding a bike we should all wear a helmet. To test the importance we created an egg helmet which we had to drop to see if the egg cracked. Unfortunately none of our eggs survived but we had great fun with this project.

In English this week, we have looked closer at Bluebirds. We have found out where they live, what they look like and what they like to eat. We made bird cakes out of lard, raisins, bird seed and cheddar cheese. We got very messy as we mixed it all up by hand. Check out our photos below. Fingers crossed the birds liked them as much as we enjoyed making them.
