Busy, busy, busy!

This week in Literacy and Science we discussed the growing process and set up an investigation to see what would happen if our cress seeds did not have the ideal conditions to grow. In shared writing, we wrote step by step instructions for growing our seeds and for our independent writing we used our phonics knowledge to write a list.

In Maths we explored using the part, part, whole model with practical resources. We focused on using the language e.g. ‘2 is a part, 3 is a part so 5 is the whole’. This helps children to develop their understanding of number and to explain their reasoning.
