How our seeds are growing

We have been watering our seeds every couple of days and sitting them on the window sill to get some  light. We look at the seeds each week and we have noticed in our cups that the seed was splitting and we could see the root starting to grow. Some seeds grew quicker than others. In some of the pictures you can see there is now a root going down and a shoot coming up.We will plant some seeds into  soil  and leave some without soil  and we will see how they grow.







 We also put some seeds into a drink bottle and poked holes all around it and changed the water each day . We watched and saw that the seeds start to sprout really quickly.We have learnt that seeds will sprout when they have light and water.

Counting to 5 and making sets to 5

Ollie and Jade are learning to count to 5 and make sets for numbers to 5


Dr Seuss's ABC book- Writing


Today we read Dr Seuss's ABC book as we are having a Dr Seuss day tomorrow at school.
In writing we were learning about  Alliteration .
The children listened to the book being read to them.
We then looked at what alliteration was. As a group we chose an animal that we would see at the zoo. Together we thought of some words that start with the  beginning sound and wrote these down and then as a class we made our sentence. The children paired up and they had a picture of an animal and they wrote down their words and then  with the support of the teacher made up their sentences.



Alliteration happens when words that start with the same sound are used close together in a sentence. The sound is usually a consonant and the words don't have to always be right next to one another.

We are finding out about

 How does a seed grow?
The children have watched a video about how seeds grow. They know that seeds need light, water and soil to grow.We thought we would find out if seeds can grow without soil.
