  • In Science this term, we are going to be exploring plants.
  • To start this topic, I would like you to hunt in our garden or while you are on a walk for plants and flowers and make a note of what you see or you can draw a picture of the different plants.
  • I have attached a sheet for you to use to support you finding flowers and also a sheet for looking at different creatures.  How many can you find?

  • You could have another session of body percussion from Friday as that can be a lot of fun and it has endless possibilities for rhythms.  There are lots of short videos on youtube giving options - type in body percussion for kids.


You could have a go at creating a paper chain octopus.  Draw the body and build the legs out of paper chains.  It can be as big or small as you want.  I have attached a couple of examples below.
