Wk beg 20.4.20 Plants

Welcome back! I hope you had a good Easter holiday, although it was probably a little different from normal. I'm sure you managed to eat lots of chocolate and have fun though. I have managed to eat plenty of chocolate but have taken up running (couch to 5K) with my son, Jack, and my dog Evie. We’re on week 5 now which is hard but we’re not giving it up! It feels good to do exercise too. I’ve also taught Evie to ‘wait’ and can put a treat on her paw. She doesn’t eat it until I tell her! I’m very proud of her smileyyesheart

I also saw a school dog online that has learnt to read the words ‘sit’, ‘lie down’ and ‘paw’- I think I might try that next!

 

 

I have set you some projects to do this week- don't forget to email photos to me and I can share them on this page. I would ask that your parents send me at least one email a week to let me know how you’re doing as I miss seeing you all! It’s important that we stay in touch so at least one email a week from everyone is a must please! 

I have set a 'talk for writing' activity for you, which you MUST do (start with Year 2 as it has some reminders about apostrophes and then do Year 3- some of you may want to look at the Year 1 booklet). The booklets are at the bottom of the page for you to download. You must also read everyday, do some maths tasks on education city, learn your times tables and division facts and practise your spellings.


This week, your project is all about PLANTS

Aims:

I can describe and illustrate the parts of a flowering plant.

I can grow, observe and record the growth of a range of plants.

 

Choose from one of these activities or you could even think of some of your own. Remember, you don’t have to do all of them but you must draw and label the parts of a plant and talk about their functions.

 

Projects

Plant some seeds and watch them grow everyday and record what you see. You could draw a picture or write a sentence or even take a photo. Mustard and cress seeds are great for this task.

 

Find out what plants need to grow by designing your own experiment. Think about light, soil, warmth and water.

http://www.lovemyscience.com/growaplant.html Try to make your experiment a fair test and keep a record of what you have been doing.

 

You MUST draw a picture of a flower and label its different parts using their correct names (Root, stem/trunk, leaves, flower). What is the function of each part of the plant? On education city, there is a video for you to watch. There is also a worksheet at the bottom of the page that you can use to help you. Can you find two flowers that look very different from each other?

 

If you have a garden you could go on a plant safari and count how many different types of plants there are and draw them or take photographs.

 

Find plants that live in different parts of the world in different climates. For example, tropical plants, desert plants, plants that live in water, mountain plants and arctic plants. You could show us on a world map where these plants live. Perhaps you could use a balloon like we did in class for the equator and draw the plants on.

 

Extras

Can you find out about some plant world record holders?

The tallest tree, biggest flower, smelliest flower or the world’s weirdest vegetable. Be imaginative-I know some of you love making your own books-could you make a plant world record book?

 

Find out about carnivorous plants.

Draw/paint your own meat eating plant or even make one with your junk modelling skills. How scary can you make it?

 

 

Don’t forget to email us and tell us how you are getting on. Send us a picture and we’ll put it on the class page on the website.

Have fun!
