We have already been so busy this term! Our Garden Center role play area has been extremely busy and we have had the pleasure of watching daffodils flower in the classroom although they have been knocked over on frequent occasions! We are incredibly excited because our bean plants have started to grow! We can see the shoot appearing and roots coming through at the bottom of the top. The race is on to see whose will have the longest stem! Now that we have these flowers and plants, we will be learning about their parts. We will use microscopes to look at the tiny parts.
In English, we have been reading the stories of 'Oliver's Vegetables' and 'Oliver's Fruit Salad'. We learned about different fruits and where in the world they grow. We then made our own very tasty fruit salads using locally grown fruits. We learned how to peel, segment and chop fruit safely using knives. Then, we used our maths skills to share the fruit equally.
