Week 4 blog
Monday 27th April
On Friday Miss Hing and I were working together in school, we really missed everyone. We wanted to draw a chalk farm and add ourselves into it…..but our drawing skills weren’t good enough. So we ended up being beers flying over flowers.
Maybe, if you have chalks at home you could draw a chalk farm for us.

Friday 1st May
You are all working so hard. Thank you for all the amazing photos and comments about work that you have loaded onto Tapestry! I have posted a variety of photos so everyone can see what their friends are up too. Do also watch the video from about the goats on the Dairy Farm in Ireland and there are even some chickens at the end!
A book closely connected with vegetables is, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. This is a great book to read is you have a version of it at home, or does your child already know it. Can they tell you the main parts of the story?
Lots of you have started to grow your own vegetables, can you talk about what the vegetables need to grow? A fun activity if you can get hold of some beans is to plant them in a class jar and watch their roots and shoots grow.
Instructions: Get a glass jar and put ‘snugly’ around the edge kitchen roll or blotting paper. Place the beans between the paper and the jar. Put some water in the bottom of the jar and watch the paper towel soak up the water. Watch your beans sprout through the glass jar.
How are you Cress Egg Heads doing?
This is my Egg,
One of our pupils had the idea to make a Chive Porcupine. She used a potato and scooped out the middle. Then she added a face and legs. She then added compost into the bodies and sowed some chive seeds which should grow into porcupine spikes.
Adding and Subtracting Vegetables
Watch the video above, can your child show you some addition and subtraction sentences using vegetables?
