With the beautiful weather and spring in the air it’s a great opportunity to get outdoors for some learning in the garden.
In your Small World Geography and Science read Unit 4 on Plants and try to complete some of the following activities as well as the written activities on the unit. For anyone that was absent on the last day you can access the Small World books through the CJ fallon website

2. Click on 'Student Resources'
3. Select class level, subject and book
4. View online book by clicking on the eye icon
Read Pg.21 – Find 6 plants-anything that grows not necessarily a flower- in your garden/ around your house (they don’t have to be mentioned on Pg.21)
Read Pg. 22 – Watch some videos about plant and animal life in the rainforest
Read Pg. 23- Pull up some weeds in your garden. Can you identify the parts of the plant mentioned on Pg. 23- look out for the roots especially!
Read Pgs. 24 and 25- perhaps you might like to try some planting of your own. It’s a great time of year to plant potatoes – follow the experiment on Pg. 24 to help you out.

After completing the unit, choose one or more of the following pieces of writing:
Listen to some the following track (or all of it if you like!). You might like to use it as an opportunity to take some time out to relax or use it as inspiration to create a piece of artwork or even to create a piece of Stop Motion on the topic.
As I’ve said before if you have any questions you can email me on the sixth class email address. Try your best with any of the work given and make sure to get plenty of physical activity in during the day too- even if that means the odd Tik Tok dance move thrown in here and there!
Missing you all,
