Our topic this half term is Life cycles and growth. We have got some caterpillars in a jar with some food. We are watching them grow daily and are waiting for them to transform into a chrysalis and then into a beautiful butterfly. Keep an eye on the photos to see the changes taking place.
Life cycle of a Ladybird
We have also been looking at the life cycle of a Ladybird. We went on a fact finding mission and looked at a range of non-fiction books about Ladybirds. We then tried to write some phonetically plausible sentences. Finally we made our own Ladybirds out of paper plates with the correct sequence inside.
We have been very busy planting some cress and sunflower seeds. We had a discussion about the difference between the two and how cress can be grown on cotton wool but the sunflowers need to be grown in soil. The thing that they have in common is that they both need sunlight, water and air. Take a look at the pictures.
Our grandparent's came into out classroom to spend the morning with us doing lots of art and craft activities. We looked at the work of Andy Worhal and tried to create our own interpretations of his work. We made puppets, did beach collages and used sand and paint to create a beach scene. Then we sang some songs and did some massage.
It was a very busy morning but fun was had by all. Take a look at the pictures.
