To start today's lesson off, we're going to look back at some of the predictions made and carry on reading the 'Maximus and the Beanstalk' story.
We are then going to recap on what has just happened, is the Giant the same as last week's story? What is different in this story?
Who are the main characters in the story? and what do we know about them?
Read page 6-7, where is the dialogue? How could we read it? - practice reading it in different voices and expressions.
Then go to page 10-11, where is the dialogue again? and how could we read it? - practice reading it in different voices and expressions.

You have been recording the weekly progress of your seeds and bulbs.
This week we are going to find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy by comparing the growth of the seedlings under different conditions. The children will use their observations to explain what plants need. They will also gather and record data to help in answering the questions by measuring the results of the plants in different conditions. They will then record the results of the comparative test.
The children will then focus on temperature and plant some cress seeds in different areas to compare their growth.
Recap what we have done:
Do you remember when we planted some seeds for our comparative test?
In a comparative test, you look at things closely to see what is the same and what is different.
What conditions have we given our plants?
Tell someone how you think that each plant will have grown.
This is your prediction.
Record the results of your plants progress on the plant growth table provided or the one you have made at home, or use the Purple Mash one.
Discuss what conclusions you have come to.
Watch the presentation and plant some cress seeds or other seeds you have to hand. It could be apple pips, or orange seeds. Plant one outside and one inside. What is your prediction?
By the end of this lesson children will be able to:

There are times when we all have to go through changes. Actually we are all experiencing something very different at the moment with lockdown and the Corona virus. It is tricky for everyone, adults included. Let’s think of things that will help us to feel better. It is important that even when a change does not feel good we are able to think of positive things to help us to cope.
If you had a box where you could keep things that make you feel better, what would you put in your box?
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
