As part of our topic ‘What a wonderful world!’ during our Language for thinking time this week we have been focusing and learning about plants. The children started their week by learning what a plant needs to grow, moving on to what the parts of the plant are and what their job is. Finally, by the end of the week the children were able to order the life cycle of a plant.
In our continuous provision time, the children took full advantage of the sunshine and did some amazing planting and exploring of plants in our reception outdoor area.
The children enjoyed drawing and labelling flowers independently.
They explored real plants and flowers in the tuff tray with magnify glasses, matching the phase 3 sentences to the correct plant pictures.
The children have also painted fantastic pictures of real-life flowers. Fantastic job Swans!
