We have learned all about where fruit and vegetables grown. This afternoon we choose different fruits that grow above the ground and below.
We then practised cutting each of the different fruits.
Learning objective: I can identify and classify plants and trees in my local environment
As part of our plants topic in science, we have learnt about trees and their leaves. We then had a leaf hunt!
Learning Objective: I can work scientifically by researching what they have found out about different plants.
This afternoon, the children had some cut up flowers on their table. The children then composed their own questions they wanted to find out about the flower.
Learning Objective: I can observe plant growth from seed to full growth. (Observations over time)
Today we have planted our own broad bean. We also planted a class broad bean as we are going to observe its growth over time. We learned that we need soil, warmth given by the soil and water to enable to seed to grow.
Learning Objective: I can make comparisons about the seasons over time [observations over time].
Working Scientifically:I can create seasonal artwork or write seasonal poetry.
Today we discussed the changes that happen to trees throughout the year. We learned how the leaves and buds start to grown in Spring, the leaves are green in Summer, in Autumn the leaves turned orange and brown and start to fall of the trees. Finally in Winter, the laves have all fallen off and the trees are bare.
Learning Objective:Comparing and contrasting animals (humans) at first hand or through videos and photographs.
Secretly, the parents of Elm class sent me a photo of their child as a baby. Then yesterday the children had an exciting afternoon trying to guess who each baby was, it was amazing how many didn’t recognise themselves!
Learning Objective: Working scientifically by: Using their senses to compare different textures, sounds and smells.
This afternoon we used our senses to compare different textures, sounds and smells. To test our hearing, we listened to a range of sounds and had to guess what each noise was. We then played the “Kim’s game”, we had a range of pictures to look at, we then took the pictures away and we had to see how many we could remember. We then used touch and feel boxes. We had to put our hand in the boxes and describe what we could feel and what we thought it was. There was a teddy, jelly and a pinecone. After that we tested our sense of smell. We had different things and we had to guess what was in each pot. In the pots there was garlic, lemon and vinegar. At the end we used our mouth to taste different foods- we had to think of a word to describe each food item. The food items were lemon, chocolate buttons and salty popcorn.
Learning Objective: Identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body.
This afternoon we drew round each other and labelled the different body parts that we knew. We knew that some body parts are internal and some our external.
Learning Objective:Identify and name a variety of common animals including som fish, some amphibians, some reptiles, some birds and some mammals.
This afternoon we used Active Learn to research “reptiles”. We learned what reptiles are. We also looked at some different reptiles and their features. We created our own class fact file.
Learning Objective: Identify and name a variety of common animals including some fish, some amphibians some reptiles, some birds and some mammals.
This afternoon we learned about different animal groups and what characteristics each group has. We then sorted animals into the different groups. After that we chose one of our favourite animals, we wrote what group they belonged to and a fact we have learned.
