Experience

To research plants that will grow something I can eat

  1. I can find out the different plants that grow fruit or vegetables
  2. I can choose which plant I could grow
  3. I can explain why I chose that idea

The challenge this week is to grow something that you can eat. Now that you know about plants and what plants need to grow, you can now begin deciding what you would like to grow.

Spend some time looking on the internet for ideas. I found this website useful: https://www.diyncrafts.com/4732/repurpose/25-foods-can-re-grow-kitchen-scraps.

It gives ideas for how to re-grow foods from kitchen scraps. I think this will be interesting to do and it doesn’t rely on me needing seeds.

 

Other useful websites include:

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/easy-crops-kids-grow

https://picklebums.com/veggies-to-grow-with-kids/

 

As you are researching options, draw them or print out pictures of your choices. See my example below:

Now think about which idea you like the best. Will you be able to do it/ is it a realistic choice? Have you got what you need or will it be easy to get what you need?

Write down the idea you have chosen and why like I have done below:

10.15-10.30 Breaktime - have a healthy snack and play.  
10.30-11

Reading –

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

Here is the link for the Oxford Owl reading.

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 For every phonics session, please continue to watch the set 3 speed sounds at 10:30 on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above.
