Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a good week.

Let’s start our day in the normal way.  15.1.21 – internet

Let’s get moving – Joe Wicks has been doing some great PE workouts, let’s try and copy what he’s been doing.

Maths – today you are going to be putting some magic beans in order starting at number 1.  15.1.21 – order magic beans

ICT – Do you have access to a drawing package on a computer?  If you do please can you draw me a beanstalk with all of the leaves.  If you don’t then don’t worry, can you please draw me one instead.  Don’t forget to use different colours.

Matching – can you sort these cards out for me.  Can you find 2 Jack’s, 2 beanstalks etc.  If you have someone to play with, maybe you could play snap.  15.1.21 – matching cards

Sorting – You’re going to need some dried foods from your kitchen cupboards and some little bowls or tubs.  Please ask a grown up to put a mixture of dried foods like beans, lentils or pasta in a big bowl and can you sort them out into smaller bowls.  If you want a bigger challenge, maybe you could try using some tweezers.

Growing a beanstalk – Do you know what plants need to grow?  If you have a dried bean why not plant it in a clear glass container or ziplock bag and watch it grow, it shouldn’t take very long.  I hope it grows right up to the sky!

How long do you think it will take to grow?
Has it grown yet? What has changed?
What does it look like?
Are there any leaves yet?
Can you see the brown seed, the white sprouts and the green leaves?
When did we plant the seed?
Can you count how many days it has been growing for?

Don’t forget to send your photographs into school.

We hope you have a lovely weekend x

Stay safe
