Week 4

Dear Parents and Carers

We are continuing our project about plants. This week in English we are using the book 'From a Tiny Seed' as the inspiration our own seed stories. We will be out in the grounds finding the places seeds can or can't grow.

In science we are continuing to observe our bean seeds and recording what we see in our Bean Diaries. The children will also be learning about the life cycle of a sunflower from seed to flower and back to seed. We will also be carrying out an experiment to discover what plants need to grow and survive.

In maths we are revisiting unstructured number lines and using them to solve subtraction problems.

In art we are learning how to create a wash as a background for our water colour paintings.

Some of the children have sent us photos of thier seeds growing which is great. If you would like to plant them on into a bigger pot or out the garden please send us a photo of how they are growing. The children can add comments or observations in the comment section of Tapestry. 

We would like to remind you that we are uploading 2/3 pieces of learning on to Tapestry every week so please take a look and leave a 'like' or comment.

Don't forget to log on to Bug Club for more books for your children to read in their Book Band Colour. We read these in class and the children love the quizzes and the variety of books and stories. Here is the link:-

Have a lovely week.

Kind regards

The Year 1 Team
