We’ve been growing our own bean plants after reading Jack and the Beanstalk.
We started them off in bags so that we could watch the different parts growing.
These pictures are one bean on day 1, 7 and 12:
We also completed a science experiment to find out what plants need to grow (one of our topic questions). These pictures show one bean which we gave just water, one bean which we gave just light and one bean which we gave both:
Today we’ve potted our beans and they’re coming home!
I am so sorry about such muddy clothes coming home BUT we did have an amazing day!
We started off on a winter hunt – perfect timing as it was still snowing!
During our morning break we had our fruit snack and completed role play activities about Percy the Park Keeper!
After break we ready the story ‘The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse’ by the fire, before going on a countryside walk noting all the things that make Pipin the Country Mouses’ home!
Just before lunch we tip toed through the fairy wood!
After a quick refuel for lunch in the lovely warm stables we went on a long explore looking for plants which grow in the winter. We found lots of greenery but not many flowers!
Our final treat was hot chocolate and biscuits just before setting off back to school!
Thank you so so much for sending the children in wrapped up and ready for action – we all had a fantastic day and will sleep well tonight!
And thank you to Mrs Overend, Mrs Taaffe, Mrs Owen and Mrs Jones for all your help!

Today we have been practising finding doubles mentally and using concrete objects!
We also learn’t a helpful doubling song to help us practise:
“Have you seen my doubling machine? This is how it goes, you put a number in your ear, and the double will appear, when you press your nose, like…”
Ask your children to sing it and have a practise of doubling at home!
We had the most amazing day at Blue Planet Aquarium!
We started the day with a classroom session where we learnt all about sea creatures – did you know that sand tiger sharks have around 350 teeth!! The session finished with us meeting a starfish – we were allowed to touch it as long as we were gentle.
Next we went to a divers show! We learnt how to communicate with the divers through the glass before they fed the sting rays and fish!
We headed through the under water tunnel and had scary sharks and huge sting rays swimming over the top of us!
After a quick break for dinner we explored the rest of the aquarium looking at all the exhibits before heading back to school.
