Planting sunflower seeds

Lewis wanted to plant some seeds to grow some flowers. He lead a group activity this afternoon and helped everyone to plant some sunflower seeds to take home. We're experts at growing plants now we know what they need to grow well!

Parts of flowers

Today we found out about the functions of the different parts of flowers. We learned that flowers have male parts called stamen which are made up of the anther and filament. They also have female parts called the carpel which contains the ovary and and a sticky part at the top called the stigma. Can you remember what all the parts do and tell an adult?

We dissected some daffodil flowers to see if we could find all the different parts.

Reading buddies

Book Day 2018

The Tin Forest

We read the book, "The Tin Forest" for book day today. We used drama activities to explore the themes of the story and then used our inference skills to write sentences about what the main character was thinking and feeling. We then created our own tin forest in the classroom.

Watch it grow!

Reading Buddies

We shared our reading time with 2 Walnut today. Well done Holly class, Mrs Tatman was really impressed with how kind and supportive you were with her class! 10 value points for everyone!

Super duper book day costumes

Sharing our learning

Well done Eddie! He managed to make his piece of sheep's wool into a long yarn!

Developing Characters

We worked with the illustrator to develop character ideas to use in our comics.
