This half of the Spring term Poplar class are busy learning all about Plants and Growth. We are really enjoying this topic and thought everyone would like to see what we are currently learning and the activities we are doing.

  • Reading and interacting with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We love exploring the sensory elements of our story book. We love exploring magic beans and making a beanstalk and adding our own real life leafs from outside! 
  • We have been observing how plants grow and what they need to grow.
  • We are choosing the flowers we would like to grow and planting the seeds for them in our outdoor learning area.
  • We are creating lots of amazing art work around plants and growth which are displayed around our classroom.
  • Building the giant's castle in the clouds (using lots and lots of bubbles as clouds)
  • We are doing plant hunts around school and we have to find the flower, identify its colour, match it to our hunt list and count how many we found. 
  • Use the ipads to explore apps centered around learning about plants, colours, counting, matching and mark making

This has been one of our favourite topics so far and we are working hard to make our own Jack and the Beanstalk display in class all from material we have found outside in Outdoor Learning.
