Mystery Reader - Check back each week to see who it has been!

Our Beanstalks! 

Yesterday the children took their bean plants home which they planted on the first day back after February half term.
They have looked after them well, taking turns on a rota to water them! We started our topic by reading ‘The Tiny Seed’ by Eric Carle and the things the children learned from the book that seeds need to grow, we’re actually really the things they needed! These were light, warmth and water (moisture). The way our beanstalks have grown over this half term have shown this! 
Each week, one of our maths lessons has been measuring how much our beanstalks have grown using multi-link cubes. Take a look at the progress over the weeks in the photos below. We used a different colour to show each week’s growth! We have been comparing the height of the beanstalks with vocabulary such as tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest. In small groups yesterday we made group bar charts with our multi link towers to compare the heights of the beanstalks with our friends!
The overall tallest beanstalk was Daisy’s which was 43 cubes! Poppy’s was in second place at 42 cubes and Lily Jo’s in third at 40 cubes!

An Alphabet of Fruits! 

Following on from our World Book Day activities around the book 'Oliver's Fruit Salad', we have used our knowledge and the internet to research and find a different fruit for each of the letters of the alphabet! 

We have then observed closely what these fruits look like, using the internet on the ipads, and painted an observational picture of the fruit from our selected letter of the alphabet! 

We had to use our colour mixing skills that we have been developing over the year to paint them the correct colours. 

Take a look.... They look fantastic!
