It has been a very busy few weeks for us! We started our Living and Growing topic by planting some broad beans to watch them grow. We are trying to work out what a plant needs in order to be healthy. We have planted them in soil, given them water and put in them in a sunny spot in the classroom. We then learnt a song about growing plants to help us remember the key things.
We have also planted potatoes as part of the RHET Super Sonic Spud Project. We were very lucky to have a visitor from the farming world come to visit us and tell us all about planting potatoes on a large scale.
On Thursday 7th March, we dressed up as our favourite character to celebrate World Book Day. There were lots of book related activities throughout the day. We visited the library to “Ditch and Switch” our books – we all got to take a home a pre-loved book and we voted for our favourite authors and books. The best part of the day was the breakfast where we ‘shared a story’! Tesco had kindly donated lots of different food for us to have for breakfast – we could choose from cereal, fruit or toast with different toppings – whilst we read.
