SCIENCE and art!
In class we have been looking at the changes around us that take place at this time of year.
In class we made seed and bean 'bombs' wrapped in clay, they are ready to be planted. These should have travelled home with your child. If not- don't worry, you can plant some dried peas- the type you would use to cook with.
Over the next few weeks I would like your child to keep a diary of what they see and observe; the first page will explain where and how the seeds are planted. A labelled drawing would be better than a photo.
It would be interesting to watch a pea or bean growing in a glass jar? Make a Bean in a Jar - Science Sparks
Here are some more online links you can talk about with your child and try!
Science is fun!
Next Week- let's find out how the new growth and plants changes the lives of birds, animals and insects.
You could try these too! Let us know which ones you have done on Dojo. Have fun!
Year 1 and 2 Science
What do plants, animals and birds do in Springtime?
Have the seeds you planted started to germinate (grow) yet?
When they seed begins to grow – which part starts to change first?
Keep drawing and writing your ‘Spring-time Diary’
As the plants start growing in our gardens, fields and hedge-rows; have you noticed the birds pecking at the new shoots? What else are the birds collecting? What are the birds starting to make?
Look at the RSPB website- it is free to use.
Go into the ‘Fun and Learning’ section. Here there all sorts of activities you can try and they are a really easy way to find the names of the birds you might be watching.
See how many different birds you can see. You might like to make an information book with a different page for each type of bird. Can you group the birds by looking at their different shaped beaks? Do different shaped beaks help birds eat different types of food?
Is the shape of the beak of a Blackbird the same as a Chaffinch? How does the different shape help the birds find different food for themselves and their Chicks?
There are so many things to look for around us over the next few weeks.. keep watching and asking questions and learning! Maybe you can talk to members of your family on the phone and tell them what you have seen- maybe they can tell you what they have seen too. You could have a competition- Who can see the most Robins or Wrens each day?
Have fun and enjoy being Super Scientists!
Listen to, or read, a book on one of these brilliant websites. Which books would you recommend, and for who? You could let us know on Dojo!
