A plant scavenger hunt!
If you are lucky enough to have a garden or some outdoor space near you use the sheet below to go on a scavenger hunt to see how many different types of plant you can spot. What is the same about them? What is different about them? Which do you like the best?
Maybe you could pick up some leaves or petals from the ground and use them to create a collage of a plant? I would love to see what you do!
(Parents - I have attached a document with all the year 1 terminology for plants!)
This half term, our Science topic was going to be all about plants. Talk to your child about the structure of a plant and what each part is called. If you are lucky enough to have a garden, you could observe how plants grow and what they look like at each part of the process. I have attached a powerpoint which names and identifies the different parts of a plant.
Maybe you could ask your child to draw a picture of a plant and label the key parts? I would love to see them!
Can you name the 5 senses? Talk about what they are and which part of the body we use for each one. Then have a go completing this senses grid. You can use your own ideas or you can use the picture cards to help you.
Trees trees trees!
In Science, we have been looking at the ways in which trees change over a year. If you have a garden or an open space near you, go and have a look at what the trees look like in Spring. Perhaps you could create a piece of art to show me the colours and textures you see? Enjoy!
