Good morning Reception Class. Yesterday you looked at the seeds you had grown in class. Today let’s see if you can grow more. You can use vegetables which you will have at home. Remember to practice this week’s song, ready for singing together at 3pm tomorrow.
Literacy and topic
Do you really think that if you planted beans like in the story, they would grow overnight? Have you ever grown anything before? Use CBeebies: How Does Your Garden Grow https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/how-does-yourgarden-grow for advice and ideas about growing plants at home. Plant seeds which sprout quickly to maintain children’s interest. You could make a quick-growing cress head like in Mr Bloom’s nursery: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/mrblooms-nursery-cressheads, or you could plant sunflower seeds: https://www.rhs.org.uk/education-learning/gardeningchildren-schools/family-activities/grow-it/grow/sunflower If no seeds are available, you could grow leftover vegetable scraps to use in salads: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/dotfvegetable-scraps?collection=national-gardening-week
Just like we did in class, you can write your own set of instructions showing how to do it.
