Make your own big warning sign. What could you tell people not to do?
What does a plant need to grow?
Please watch these videos on BBC Bitesize.
Then see the attached presentation below. There is no expectation for you to plant a seed. If you do not have any seeds or bulbs at home, you could use an onion bulb and apple seeds. When planting the onion in soil, plant it with the top of the bulb above the level of the soil. With apple seeds, wash them in warm water and remove any apple from them.Allow the seeds to dry out for three days before planting.We will be planting some seeds in school then planting them in four conditions to see how they grow. We will photograph and update you weekly on their growth. In Purple Mash there are sheets to record the progress of your seeds or bulbs. There are four sheets, one for each of the conditions; water and sunlight, water and no sunlight, no sunlight and water, and no sunlight and no water. Try to plant in at least two different conditions so you can compare the progress.
We would also like you to complete the prediction worksheet attached at the bottom, predicting how the plant will grow in the four different conditions. There is no need to print the worksheet, you can draw the symbols for the conditions they are planted in and write your prediction.
Read the scenario:
Zane and his sister Zoe are 6 and 7 years old. They have recently both lost a tooth and Zoe
has had her hair cut. At 3 years old they both went to the same nursery and then moved to reception in the same school. They have moved house twice. First they lived in a big house and then they moved to a small bungalow.
Zoe has lots of new friends since moving into Year 2.
Zane has joined a new football team and Zoe has just started gymnastics.
Can you identify all the changes that have happened in the story so far?
Can you think of any more changes that may have happened that they may have happened that they may not have included in the list?
Pick some of the changes and ask them to show the emotions that Zane and Zoe may have felt at that time.
This may give you the opportunity to discuss the positve and negative attitudes to change.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
