This week we have planted beans. For homework I would like you to create a poster about what the bean needs to grow into a tall healthy beanstalk.
Over half term I would like you to go on a bug hunt around your garden and then create a poster about the bugs that you find. We will then use these to compare the bugs that you find in your garden and the bugs that we find at Forest School. Please also continue to use letter join to practise your handwriting.
Have a lovely half term.
Over the next few weeks we will learning about how to keep ourselves healthy. For homework I would like you to create a poster all about the things that you do to keep yourself healthy. You can draw and label pictures or write sentences.
Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about zoo animals. For homework I would like you to make a poster about your favourite zoo animal. You can print or draw a picture of your favourite animal and then write 3 facts about it. Please complete this on paper so that we can make a display of them in the classroom.
