Hello Yellow Class!
I hope you’ve enjoyed your half-term week. It’s not been easy with the stressful pandemic and the horrible news out of America. As we’ve said many times at West Green, in lessons and in Current Affairs assemblies, we need to be tolerant. Everybody is equal, everybody deserves respect.
If you missed my half term walk, you can watch it by clicking the link below. In the video I introduce our new science and geography topics, and I play a word aware game. So I really want you to watch the video, and don’t forget to leave a comment about my beard or the map!
Today it’s time to get learning once again, we’ve got seven more weeks of maths, reading, writing, science, geography and much more to be getting on with! After seven weeks, it will all be over, and you will be in YEAR THREE!
Begin by watching my video.
Now look at some of the different plants I found on my walk.
The pictures show stinging nettles, buttercups, red campion flowers and bluebells. Nettles grow in so many places and it’s not nice when you touch one by accident, because they hurt you! Buttercups are beautiful flowers that look amazing on a bright summer’s day. The red campion are actually pink, which I find unusual! Finally the bluebells in my picture are near the end of their lifecycle. They appear in April, but by the end of May they begin to wilt away. We won’t see them again until April next year.
Which is your favourite plant? It doesn’t have to be one of the plants in my pictures. I want you to become artists and draw your plant, like this…
Using your memory from Year 1, I need you to label the parts, just like this child has done. I also want you to name your plant, don’t just draw an imaginary plant with a pretty flower of any colour!
Please email your drawings with the labels to firstname.lastname@example.org
You know how human babies grow up to become adults…
However what about my field of wheat? The wheat plant, what does that look like at the beginning of life? Tell me in the comments!
