Welcome back to home learning. We hope you have all had a lovely break and made some fantastic memories. This half term we will be looking at plants in our environment and thinking about how they grow.
We will start our journey by learning about seeds, how they can look different and thinking about how they grow into plants. We will look at common plants and name them. We will think about how some plants are wild plants and about how they might have got there. We will look at different examples of trees and discuss the difference between a ‘deciduous’ and ‘evergreen’. We will recap the names of parts of a plant and tree and think about the role of each of these parts. We will think about the features of 'Spring' and look for them on a walk around school. The books we are focusing upon this half term are 'The Rabbit Problem' and 'Peter Rabbit'.
In this pack there is a page with activities and web-links for the children to access, click on them to have a go. Games are a great way to practise and develop skills.
