Hello Yellow Class! Welcome to another week of learning at home.
If you missed my video message on Friday afternoon, please go and watch it now. I’m updating you with the latest news about Year 2 and when you will go back to school. Please watch it by clicking on the blog post below.
Your Purple Mash and MyMaths has been set for the week. You can complete these on any day.
You will need to be very sharp on your five times table before completing this week’s MyMaths task. There will be a helpful video in tomorrow’s blog post, so if you aren’t feeling confident, please wait until tomorrow.
In the last lesson, you remembered your learning from Year 1, where you had to identify the parts of a plant. Below is a cherry blossom drawn by Yi-Xuan with the parts labelled.
The roots would normally be much longer and stretch much wider than you might expect. Watch this video and look at how long the roots become!
After planting the seed, the next step is germination. In the first three days, you will see germination happen.
You could choose to grow a plant from garlic or pepper like Aaron. Garlic and peppers are easily found in the shops. Soil might be a little bit trickier to find. You could take some from your nearest park, or you could take some from school on Friday if you ask nicely!
So I want you to try and grow a plant over the next three weeks. It’s a very long project! You can email me at any time to let me know how the project is going. You could…
There is so much you could do! I am letting you choose the experiment you want to do. You choose the type of plant you want to grow! You choose how you will record what’s happening. You choose if you want to grow two at the same time and test to see which conditions are better.
It promises to be lots of fun and I look forward to seeing some of your results! These sheets below might help you.

Well done for reading all of that! If you have any questions about the challenge, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember I am replying to my emails until Wednesday evening, then Krishna will be taking over for a while.
In the comments, tell me what plant you think you would like to grow. How tall do you think it will grow in centimetres? Type your prediction as a comment to win a merit.
