Nursery have started learning about their 'growing' topic. We've had a really busy week reading the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and re-telling the story, using lots of props, to our friends.
Can you have a go at re-telling the story to your family at home? You can use props from around your home to help you. Remember the language from the story, "FEE FI FO FUM." What did Jack steal from the giant first?
We've been talking about what we would see at the top if we had our own beanstalk. Can you mark make a picture of this at home? I would see a chocolate factory at the top!
We've been growing our own beans and learning all about how to look after the bean to help it grow.
Can you have a go at growing your own beanstalk at home? We used soil at school, maybe you can use some damp cotton wool at home. What does it need to grow?
1. Fill a cup or a jar with some damp cotton wool 2. Place a lima/butter bean inside the cotton wool 3. Place the cup/jar near the window 4. Make sure the cotton wool doesn't get dry. Keep it damp. But don't make it too wet or your beanstalk won't grow.
We tasted some beans in class and told each other in full sentences what our favourite ones were and why. We even did some wonderful mark making to show this.
For your mark making at home can you write about your lima bean plant? What can you see? How are you looking after it? Draw pictures and don't forget to write your name.
Well done Nursery for looking after our bean plants! They need some sun light and water!
