Growing and Changing

As part of our topic on “Growing and Changing” we have been looking at plants. First we read “Errol’s Garden” and planted some tomatoes and peppers in our garden. Then we read some non-fiction books about plants, labelled parts of a sunflower and planted our own sunflower seeds.  In Literacy, we wrote instructions on how to plant sunflowers and what they need to grow. We even made some sunflower collages with our Year 5 buddies!

Later in the week we read “How to be a cress barber” and we followed the instructions in the book to plant our own “cress heads”.
