Is Everything in the Garden Rosy?


Project Overview

Through our question this term, we are looking at how to grow plants from seeds and bulbs.  We will be working scientifically to investigate what they need to germinate. Linked to our study of plants we will be looking at the micro-habitats of mini-beasts. We will be providing them with bug hotels. By doing this we will be able to discover if we are protecting our gardens pro-actively enough to protect the environment.

Mini Outcomes

  • Write about Amelia Earhart
  • Grow an edible plant
  • Weave sculptures for the school garden.

Final Outcome

Make mini beast hotels for the school garden

 Group Information

Pupils will need to wear their PE kit to school every Wednesday.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day – we advise storing these in pupils’ school bags. Please make it a priority to read with your child and we ask that the reading record is signed by an adult five times a week.

Homework is set on Seesaw on a Friday and is expected to be completed by the following Wednesday. Staff will mark the children’s work online and send it back for the pupils to see. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework on Seesaw per week – Maths and Spelling.

Pupils have received their own individual QR Code/Text Code to log in to Seesaw on a laptop or tablet at home. Smart phones can also be used to access the work, however pupils may struggle to type on such a small screen so we recommend handwritten answers on paper which can then be photographed and uploaded as that child’s piece of work.

Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they use the following activities at home each week:

Reading Plus / Reading eggs .

Maths Shed

Spelling Shed

Times Table Rockstars

The top 3 online application users each week will be displayed on our class leaderboard.

Remember to keep up with what we are doing on the school website and twitter feed.
